The sheer beauty of the planet surprised me. It was a huge pearl, set in spangled ebony. It was nacreous, it was an opal. No, it was far more lovely than any jewel. Its patterned colouring was more subtle, more ethereal

Sand ridges, 200 miles directly above the Martian surface. This image was taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on Jan. 27, 2010. The black spidery flecks dotting the ridges, mostly on the sunny side, appear every spring and disappear every winter. Michael Benson/ NASA/JPL/ University of Arizona/Kinetikon Pictures

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.

Martian Fans-The HiRISE camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter captured this look at the spectacular patterns created by wind-blown material on the south polar ice cap of Mars. The area shown is about a kilometer across. NASA / JPL / University of Arizona
