Fascinating images of Mars by NASA’s MRO or Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
1-The Moving Sands of Lobo Vallis
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter shows bright ripples line the topography in this region, formed within a past climate.
2-The Case of the Martian Boulder Piles
This image was originally meant to track the movement of sand dunes near the North Pole of Mars, but what's on the ground in between the dunes is just as interesting!
3-Gullies of Matara Crater
Gullies on Martian sand dunes, like these in Matara Crater, have been very active, with many flows in the last ten years.
4-Prospecting from Orbit
The combination of morphological and topographic information from stereo images from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
5-A South Polar Pit or an Impact Crater?
This observation from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter show it is late summer in the Southern hemisphere, so the Sun is low in the sky and subtle topography is accentuated in orbital images.
6-Windblown Sand in Ganges Chasma
Dark, windblown sand covers intricate sedimentary rock layers in this image captured by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) from Ganges Chasma, a canyon in the Valles Marineris system.
7-Colorful Equatorial Gullies in Krupac Crater
Although large gullies (ravines) are concentrated at higher latitudes, there are gullies on steep slopes in equatorial regions, as seen in this image captured by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO).
8-The Coolest Landscape on Mars (or Earth)
Many Martian landscapes contain features that are familiar to ones we find on Earth, like river valleys, cliffs, glaciers and volcanos.
