Mars Observer's approaching view of Mars
Filed under pretty pictures, amateur image processing, NASA Mars missions before 1996, Mars, global views
Mars Observer vanished just days before it was to enter orbit. This is one of two shots of Mars it took in August 1993, a month before its planned arrival. The original was grayscale; Ted Stryk has colorized it using ground-based images.
