Faults and pitted mounds in Utopia Planitia. This is the summit of a high massif. Beautiful Mars series.
A small, well-preserved impact crater in Hellas Planitia. Beautiful Mars series.
Nili Patera dunes. This picture gives almost complete coverage of this particular area at HiRISE resolution. Excellent! Beautiful Mars series.
Dust-lifting near the north polar ice cap led to murky conditions over parts of Acidalia and northern Utopia. The dust that was pushed southward over Acidalia, formed a stationary dust cloud — likely the result of an eddy. Looking to … Continue reading
Candidate Red Dragon landing site in Arcadia Planitia. There are indications of shallowly buried remnant ice in this area. Beautiful Mars series.
Well-preserved 4-kilometer impact crater on the floor of Hellas Planitia. Why do we say “well-preserved?” Mainly due to the fact that the rim of the crater is still very visible. Beautiful Mars series.
Channel system near Airy Crater. Beautiful Mars series.
Candidate landing site for 2020 mission in northeast Syrtis Major region. Beautiful Mars series.
Last week on Mars, a slight up-tick in dust-lifting occurred along the north polar ice cap edge. As storm activity northeast of Tempe pushed dust southward over the plains of Acidalia, a dust storm also swept over the sands of … Continue reading
Possible scoured pitted material and bedrock on floor of 65-kilometer crater. HiRISE resolution can show pitted material, exposed bedrock, other fine materials. Beautiful Mars series.
