This image targets a portion of a group of honeycomb-textured landforms in northwestern Hellas Planitia, which is part of one of the largest and most ancient impact basins on Mars. In a larger Context Camera image, the individual “cells” are … Continue reading
This image captures details of an approximately 1-kilometer inverted crater west of Mawrth Vallis. A Context Camera image provides context for the erosional features observed at this site. The location of this HiRISE image is north of the proposed landing … Continue reading
A circular structure in lava in southwestern Elysium Planitia. Beautiful Mars series.
North polar gypsum dunes. Beautiful Mars series.
The eastern rim of this small 3.5-kilometer crater appears to have collapsed into a much larger crater (about 14-kilometers wide). The larger crater has a large ice flow around its central peak, and is non-circular, with large blocks further suggesting … Continue reading
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.
