In Layers, you must tick Global Maps->CTX Mosaic. Also you can see the data strips if you tick Spacecraft Imagery->CTX Image Browser, but the external data sources from nasa seemed to be offline, reason why i didnt provided a reference link. There are other layers you can use though.

Great, thank you! Arken, there's your answer.

Here's a screenie I made with a bird's eye angle of view.

I love the way those sand dunes look. I wonder what created this particular feature.

That's a illusion caused by the low resolution of the picture. The tower is indeed just white and black sand.
See it here.





Where do you get that incredibly hi-res images in Google Earth?

What "kind" of Google Earth do you have?

A NEW "kind" of still not public Google Earth and not yet downloadable?


All we get is the low-res yellowish colour version.

Why and how you have that version?



Well because other people know the software better than YOU!
Look on the bright side Arken we can revisit all your other Mars posts to confirm how WRONG you were

It's only recently been made available: www.wired.co.uk...

I've seen this news before, but thought it would automatically show up when you zoom in. Thanks again for showing us how to do it.

P.S. here's a challenge for anyone interested: find the HiRISE image of these dark dunes!
