Mars Photo of the Day - Oct 19 2011

Today's Image of Mars shows some stunning sand dunes. The ridges on these dunes resemble thousands of legs and create the illusion that we are seeing millipedes, thus the reason HiRISE labeled this image "The Millipedes of Mars?"
Unfortunately I haven't been able to find much information about these particular dunes, but the placement nnd quantity of ridges you see do make for a fascinating image don't they?

To see the captioned image from HiRISE simply click on this image.
