Mars in Pink

Mars in Pink

This is one of the first images taken by the Phoenix Mars Lander. It shows the vast plains of the northern polar region of Mars just after landing on May 25, 2008. The flat landscape is strewn with tiny pebbles and shows polygonal cracking, a pattern seen widely in Martian high latitudes and also observed in permafrost terrains on Earth.

For some reason...It'll be possible to find a few images from Mars on Stellare in the near future...I can't help myself. Even if the images come with pink in them...
