Mars Photo of the Day - Oct 5 2011

Today's Image of Mars is of the amazing dunes found in Richardson Crater. Richardson Crater is located in the south polar region of Mars, where it goes through dramatic temperature changes throughout the year. The dark streaks are due to the movement of material as a result of wind and defrosting. 

These dunes are just another example of the remarkable landscapes to be found on Mars.
