Many slopes in the middle latitudes of Mars show icy flows or glaciers. The region shown here, in the south-facing slope of a crater, is unusual because the flows have bright highlights. The color and brightness variations are likely due … Continue reading
A crater slope in Terra Sirenum mocks us. Beautiful Mars series.
The north-facing wall of a moat-like depression in the middle of Terby Crater exposes a beautiful 400 meter-high sequence of light-toned, repetitive sedimentary layers. These deposits are often obscured by darker-toned patches of material as well as ripples and dunes. … Continue reading
Crevassed glacier-like forms. Beautiful Mars series.
An isolated secondary crater cluster from Resen Crater in Hesperia Planum. Beautiful Mars series.
Pits and cracks along a crater wall — February 2017, approximately 303 km above the surface. Beautiful Mars series.
Light-toned layered deposit within Hydrae Chasma. Beautiful Mars series.
