THEMIS Image of the Day, January 9, 2019. This VIS image shows a portion of Noachis Terra to the northeast of Argyre Planitia. In the middle of the image is an unnamed crater that is not even close to being … Continue reading
A world of crater clusters — These are in Hesperia Planum. Beautiful Mars series.
An isolated secondary crater cluster from Resen Crater in Hesperia Planum. Beautiful Mars series.
This image shows one of millions of small (10s of meters in diameter) craters and their ejecta material that dot the Elysium Planitia region of Mars. The small craters were likely formed when high-speed blocks of rock were thrown out … Continue reading
This region of Mars has been sprayed with secondary craters from 10-kilometer Zunil Crater to the northwest. Secondary craters form from rocks ejected at high speed from the primary crater, which then impact the ground at sufficiently high speed to … Continue reading
THEMIS Image of the Day, March 15, 2017. Today’s false color image shows part of the plains of Margaritifer Terra. The swarm of craters at right was likely produced by the impact of debris ejected from a bigger impact elsewhere … Continue reading
This image of a southern mid-latitude crater was intended to investigate the lineated material on the crater floor. At the higher resolution of HiRISE, the image reveals a landscape peppered by small impact craters. These craters range from about 30 … Continue reading
Secondary impacts in Orcus Patera. Beautiful Mars series.
THEMIS Image of the Day, February 17, 2016. This VIS image shows an unnamed crater in Acidalia Planitia. The margins of the ejecta are lobate and higher than the ejecta closer to the crater. This type of ejecta blanket is … Continue reading
