- A Dark-Toned, Pitted Mound in a Crater in Northeast Arabia Terra http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/ESP_034970_2040
This fascinating observation shows us a dark-toned mound with pits inside an impact crater. Are these pits the result of sublimation?
- A Large, Banded Angular Fragment in Nili Fossae http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/ESP_035062_1995
HiRISE images of similar fragments nearby also show this banding, and the resolution of our camera may help determine what these layers are.
- An Unusual Mound http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/ESP_035078_2185
With its cracked, blistery appearance, this mound near the center of a very large crater poses an interesting question: how did this form?
- Bedrock in a Trough in Asimov Crater http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/ESP_035777_1320
The crater appears to have been completely filled by a thick sequence of materials, perhaps including sediments and lava flows.
