Mariner 7 approach image of Mars (reconstructed)
Mariner 7 had a color camera, but its image data is sparse; only one in every 7 data columns was transmitted. This global view was made by stacking images and interpolating missing data.

For more information about the Mariner 7 color images, including many more images, visit Ted Stryk's blog.
