Chryse Planitia and Western Arabia Terra

Mars Express view of Chryse Planitia and western Arabia Terra on February 23, 2015. This image was made from a two color (blue-green) observation of hazes in the atmosphere.


A seasonal dust cloud drifts above the southern edge of Chryse Planitia. Small local dust storms contributing to this dust cloud can be seen to its left. Meanwhile, the skies over western Arabia Terra and Margaritifer Terra were relatively dust-free.


This image was taken during Mars Express' 15,144th orbit of Mars.
