By far my favorite planet in our solar system (besides Earth, of course!)

I have a bunch of False Color Mars images I have been stashing away. Though a couple i picked up today after reading this thread.

A Comma Sand Dune! - Mars Reconnaissance orbiter


Cape York (from a different perspective) - Opportunity


Sand Dunes in-between rocky canyons - MRO


Avalanche on Mars! - MRO


Crazy Dunes on mars. The blue indicates the presence of frost. - MRO


A neat rock outcropping at the base of "Ritchie Crater" - MRO

haha, do you know what is funny? My last name is York! Thus why i originally saved the image. Somewhere, on mars, there is a Cape in my family's name! biggrin

Here are a few more images to share, which I dug up today on this site. Many of the ones I posted earlier can be found there. Including a very hi-resolution (2048x1536) image of the Avalanche from above.

Victoria Crater (which I think might have been posted earlier?)


Hi resolution image of layered deposits


Crazy Dunes and Seas


Converging Sand Dunes and Frost


Also, check out the CRAZY formations in this map shot from HiRise.

MAN I LOVE THIS PLANET! So much to see!

Edit:

Also, I posted most of the low resolution versions to save people's bandwidth. You can find 2048+ resolution images of all of these on the site provided above. I started from the last page (2006) and worked my way back. Careful though! the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has taken a LOT of images (2,000+)!

Few images of Martian atmosphere, those in B&W are from Mariner 9, processed by Piotr A. Masek and I've slightly edit them (remove calibration dots and some hot pixels and artifacts).

Wonderful images Solaris! It's amazing what can be done with those old images with modern processing techniques. Decades later and those missions are still showing us new sights smile

Ominous? How so? Just looks cool to me, otherwise normal.

Just the red hue really. If I saw that hanging in the sky the first word that comes to mind is ominous.
