Ready for another Where In The Universe Challenge? Here’s #80! Take a look and see if you can name where in the Universe this image is from. Give yourself extra points if you can name the spacecraft responsible for the image. As usual, we’ll provide the image today, but won’t reveal the answer until tomorrow. This gives you a chance to mull over the image and provide your answer/guess in the comment section. Please, no links or extensive explanations of what you think this is — give everyone the chance to guess.
UPDATE: The answer has been posted below.
This image is from the HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter showing season frost on dunes in Mars northern hemisphere, just south of the northern polar cap. It was taken on in July of 2008, which would have been summer at that time and place on Mars. This is one weird lookin’ place on Mars. See the full image swath below, and see this page in the HiRISE website for more information.
