Here are some amazing images from my Mars album. These have been selected from the thousands of images taken by HiRISE. Most are as seen through the IAS Viewer. Remember, these are false color images, but are stunning nonetheless!

So grab some popcorn and enjoy!





























There are more but this will have to do for now.

Fabulous images!

A question about the first photo; what are the blackish striations?

They seem to be either leakages if the photo is viewed upside down, or some form of stalagmites when viewed as presented in your post. Most intriguing!

Why do NASA show 'false color' images I wonder? What is the point?

Hopefully one day NASA will show 'true' color images...

This is because the HiRISE camera views Mars in a different part of the spectrum than human eyes do.

Nevertheless, false color imagery is extremely valuable because it illuminates the distinction between different materials and textures.

These are dunes with seasonal carbon dioxide frost flowing down when thawed. That's what scientists suggest anyway.

It's like it's another world.
