Phantom lands of Mars. Beautiful Mars series.
THEMIS Image of the Day, April 11, 2016. This VIS image shows part of an unnamed crater in Amazonis Planitia. The radial nature of the emplaced ejecta can be seen at the edge of the ejecta. It is somewhat unusual … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, October 7, 2015. The THEMIS VIS camera contains 5 filters. The data from different filters can be combined in multiple ways to create a false color image. These false color images may reveal subtle variations … Continue reading
In this image, we see an approximately 500-meter crater that is fairly fresh (in geological terms), but the ejecta is already high-standing. Could this be an indication of early stage of pedestal development? A pedestal crater is when the ejecta … Continue reading

A most noble and perfect little crater. Beautiful Mars series.
This HiRISE image shows what is termed a pedestal crater, so-called because the level of the surface adjacent to the crater is elevated relative to the surface of the surrounding terrain. The raised surface has patterns and a general outline … Continue reading
