THEMIS Image of the Day, February 1, 2017. Today’s VIS image shows a field of sand dunes on the floor of Hale Crater. Hale Crater is located in Noachis Terra north of Argyre Planitia. More THEMIS Images of the Day … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, January 19, 2017. Today’s false color image shows part of the interior of Hale Crater. The THEMIS VIS camera contains 5 filters. The data from different filters can be combined in multiple ways to create … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, December 16, 2016. This VIS image shows part of the floor of Hale Crater. The mountains in the image are part of the elongated central peak of the crater. It is believed that Hale Crater … Continue reading
Southeast rim of Hale Crater. Beautiful Mars series.
Recurring slope lineae (RSL) are active flows on warm Martian slopes that might be caused by seeping water. One of the most active sites known on Mars in in the central peaks (uplifted mountains of deep bedrock) of Hale Crater. … Continue reading
The pits visible here aren’t impact craters. The material they’re embedded into is ejecta (stuff thrown out of an impact crater when it forms) from a large crater called Hale which is not seen in this image. Substances called “volatiles” … Continue reading
In the search for potential areas with recurring slope lineae (RSL), which are probably caused by briny water, the central peak of Hale Crater is a common target. But we have no images of the southeast rim of the crater. … Continue reading
