Mars in focus
This is the sharpest view of Mars ever taken from Earth. Each pixel spans just 22 km on the Martian surface.
Taken on the last day of the Martian spring, the north polar carbon dioxide ice cap is rapidly sublimating, revealing the smaller permanent water ice cap. In the south, the giant impact basin Hellas is shrouded by bright water ice clouds.
