Sometimes, we acquire an image for the simple reason of getting either more coverage of an area, and/or to complete a mosaic of a particular spot.
Arabia Terra is one of our favorite regions to image, mainly due to the diversity and beauty of its layered deposits.
Also captured in a Context Camera image, the objective of this observation is to examine a beautiful view of many layers in a valley wall near Auqakuh Vallis.
Pictured here appears to be the edge of a blast radius of a large meteorite impact crater with smaller and more recent cratering interrupting its circumference.
The objective of this observation is to examine layers exposed in small blocks and in a butte in eastern Arabia Terra, in the Northern Hemisphere of Mars.
This un-named crater in southwestern Arabia Terra contains a treasure! Layered sediments are the key to the puzzle of Martian history. They tell us about the conditions that existed when the sediments were deposited, and how they changed over time.
