Stunning Mars Image for you - Herschel Exclusive at Dunsink
A wonderful explanation of this stunning image from the surface of Mars by Phil Platt

Much more on the HiRSE website here http://www.uahirise.org/
The incredible Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter’s HiRISE camera took the image
What can I say about this image ? it shouts out a story, it seeks and deserves our
attention , it brings focus to our spirit , and helps us wrap ourselves in the fabric
and the beauty of the surface of this awesome planet.

a lovely crescent moon on the eastern horizon 07:00 enjoy
