Astronomy Tuesday



This odd abstract is a detailed look at a small piece of Mars from 250 kilometers up. The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter captured this image of sand dunes in 2014, when the sun was low on the horizon and lit up only the peaks of the dunes. The white is frost, creating what look like giant fingerprints on the red sands.
