Mars Photo of the Day- Aug 5 2011

The following series of images was taken from early spring of one Mars year to mid-summer of the following year. They show features on the slope of Newton Crater that might be evidence of salt water flowing on Mars today. The photos were taken during the warm season on Mars by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

The features lengthen during the warm season and diminish in the cold season.
