Martian dust towers
Martian dust towers Seasonal dust storms rage on the red planet, reshaping landscapes and creating odd effects like the one seen at the bottom-center of this image: a tower-shaped cloud of dust rising dozens of kilometers or miles above the surface. The image was captured by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter in 2010. To the left of the yellowish dust tower, you can see blue-white water vapor clouds. NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS
