Martian Flyover

Featured Video Play Icon

Fly over a Martian crater in this incredibly detailed 8K video built from Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter imagery. Like Earth’s deserts, Mars is largely shaped by wind, and we get some fantastic views of sand ripples in this flyover. For reference, the vertical scale covered in the video image is roughly 1 kilometer. It’s pretty astounding to see this kind of detail from a spacecraft 250 kilometers away!
