A long strip image from the high-resolution camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter shows the Curiosity rover's landing spot in Gale Crater, as well as the terrain leading south toward the mountain known as Aeolis Mons or Mount Sharp. The colors have been stretched to emphasize differences in surface composition. A dune field can be seen in deep shades of blue. Beyond the dunes, mesas and buttes are part of the terrain surrounding the 3-mile-high mountain.

The Syrtis Major Volcanic Province. Acquired by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express Satellite, this image depicts a detailed region of the Martian Nili Fossae Graben system. This system is an area of great interest to geologists due to the variety of its landscape. The graben system contains numerous troughs, plateaus, impact craters and depressions.

Martian Crater Rich in Opal- The CRISM imaging spectrometer on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter identified the minerals present in this crater south of Baldet Crater. Among them: a form of hydrated silica better known as the gemstone opal. The colors of the landscape don't appear as they would to the human eye, because instead of the usual red, green, and blue components of photographs, this image comes from infrared, red, and blue/green sensors.
