My description of this image: “Holy moly — what a gorgeous shot!” NASA’s description of this image: “Layers in the lower portion of two neighboring buttes within the Noctis Labyrinthus formation on Mars are visible in this image from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.”

Absolutely beautiful. Click the image for access to larger versions. ‘Nuf said.

    “See, but not touch.”

    Aw, when will we grow up and get out of this house finally?

    (OK, the solar system is _not_ greener elsewhere. But what is wrong with that lovely blue landscape?)
