Two views of a dune field in the north polar region of Mars, as captured by the Mars Odyssey orbiter. On the left, a nighttime infrared image taken at about 9 pm local time using the heat radiating from the dunes. On the right, the same scene in visible daylight. Each image shows an area roughly 10 kilometers wide.
