NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity combined images into this full-circle view of the rover's surroundings. Tracks from the rover's drive recede northward across dark-toned sand ripples in the Meridiani Planum region of Mars. You need 3D glasses.

2 Years on Mars! Meridiani Planum Features Investigated by the Rover, Opportunity

The remarkable terrain at the 'center' of Mars (0 degrees latitude and longitude), as seen in this NASA Mars Odyssey image, is called Meridiani Planum. It hosts a rare occurrence of gray crystalline hematite.

This image from NASA's Mars Odyssey spacecraft shows the region where NASA's Mars Polar Lander was set to land on December 3, 1999. Unfortunately, communications with the spacecraft were lost and never regained.

These Mars Odyssey images show the 'White Rock' feature on Mars in both infrared (left) and visible (right) wavelengths. 'White Rock' is the unofficial name for this landform that was first observed during NASA's Mariner 9 mission in the early 1970's.

NASA's Earth-orbiting Hubble Space Telescope took the picture on June 26, 2001 when Mars was approximately 43 million miles (68 million km) from Earth -- the closest Mars has ever been to Earth since 1988.

The North Polar layered deposits (NPLD) are a stack of layers of ice and dust at the North Pole of Mars. The layers are thought to have been deposited over millions of years. This image is from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
