Mars South Pole from Mars Express
This image of the Martian south pole was captured by the European Space Agency's Mars Express spacecraft on February 25, 2015, from a height of 9,900 kilometers. Mars Express performed a "broom calibration" maneuver in which its high resolution stereo camera panned over the planet's surface.
