It’s time once again for another Where In The Universe Challenge. Name where in the Universe this image was taken and give yourself extra points if you can name the telescope or spacecraft responsible for the image. Post your guesses in the comments section, and check back on later at this same post to find the answer. To make this challenge fun for everyone, please don’t include links or extensive explanations with your answer. Good luck!
UPDATE: The answer has now been posted below:
This is Mars, as seen by the HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. It is sandfalls in the north polar region of the planet. This image was part of the new PDS release this week. You can see a color version and get more info on this image at this link on the HiRISE website.
