This image from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter was targeted to study knobs in Mars' northern plains, north of Scandia Crater. The knobs are clearly imaged, but what surprised scientists was a dust devil visible in the south-central part of the image.

Record-Breaking Dust Devil Caught in the Act

The unusual shallow, scalloped depressions in this image from NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft are located on the margin Peneus Patera, south of Hellas Planitia. It may be that volatiles, such as ice, are involved in the formation of these depressions.

This unnamed crater in northern Terra Cimmeria has a small channel that created a delta feature. Such features are important indicators of liquid water in Mars' past as shown in this image from NASA's Mars Odyssey.

This map shows the path that NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit followed from the 743rd Martian day (Feb. 4, 2009), or sol, to Sol 2471 (Dec. 15, 2010). Spirit has been at a sand-trap location called 'Troy' since April 2009.

This image, acquired by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, shows the rover Opportunity perched on the edge of 'Concepción' crater, a fresh crater with dark rays that clearly overprint the north-trending, wind-shaped ripples, in Meridiani Planum.

The north/south trending parallel hills and valleys in this image captured by NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft were created by wind erosion and are called yardangs. These yardangs are located in Zephyria Planum.

This map shows where NASA's Mars rover Curiosity landed in August 2012 at 'Bradbury Landing.' All of these features are inside Gale Crater. Curiosity's next major destination, the entry point to the base of Mount Sharp.
