HiRISE
2880x1800x3
This image captured by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is of an area called Aram Dorsum (also known by its old name, Oxia Palus) that has been suggested for the 2018/2020 ExoMars Rover because it contains an ancient, exhumed alluvial system.

HiRISE
2880x1800x3
This crater captured by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has a strange appearance, as if the crater has feet with toes sticking out of two sides, likely caused by a highly oblique impact event.
