Wonderfully eye-like. Beautiful Mars series.
A mid-latitude crater with a spot in the middle. From orbit, the spot looks black, but we can see in the enhanced color closeup that it’s darker (basaltic?) material on top of the lighter dunes. Beautiful Mars series.
THEMIS Image of the Day, March 26, 2018. Off the image to the right is Yuty Crater, located between Simud and Tiu Valles. The crater ejcta forms the large lobes along the right side of this VIS image. This type … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, January 15, 2017. This THEMIS image shows part of western Candor Chasma. Near the bottom of the image is an impact crater. Impact craters are relatively rare within all the canyons of Valles Marineris. The … Continue reading
Craters can be very useful in exposing features that were once hidden beneath the surface. Here, the edge of a crater wall exposes a cross-section of enhanced color bedrock in Syrtis Major, a relatively dust-free region of Mars. The diverse … Continue reading
A crater slope in Terra Sirenum mocks us. Beautiful Mars series.
Interior of a well-preserved crater in Hesperia Planum. Beautiful Mars series.
Perched at the edge of an outflow channel, these two craters appear to have lost a portion of their crater rims during a flood event. Alternatively, it is also possible that the craters impacted the edge of the outflow channel … Continue reading
Those rugged slopes. Beautiful Mars series.
Ridges in a crater floor. Beautiful Mars series.
