Martian Surface as Seen by Phoenix

This anaglyph, acquired by NASA's Phoenix Lander's Surface Stereo Imager on Sol 25, the 25th Martian day of the mission (June 19, 2008), shows a stereoscopic 3D view of the Martian surface near the lander. The trench shown here is informally called "Snow White." The hole to the left of the trench, seen in the center of the image, is informally called "Burned Alive."

The Phoenix Mission is led by the University of Arizona, Tucson, on behalf of NASA. Project management of the mission is by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. Spacecraft development is by Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver.
