Mars Photo of the Day - Jan 5 2012

Today's Image of Mars was taken by Mars Exploration Rover Spirit on the 810th sol (Martian day) of its mission (April 13, 2006) and it shows boulders with interesting texture on "Low Ridge." The boulder at the forefront of the image is approximately 40cm (16in) tall and of volcanic origin. Its surface contains many vesicles (rounded holes) in similar fashion to rocks found on the outside of lava flows on Earth.

Clicking on this image will take you to the original captioned image from NASA.
