Northern Exposure

Here’s a look at Mars’ north polar ice cap as seen by ESA’s Mars Express orbiter on September 30, 2010, edited by astrophotographer and digital artist Mike Malaska. The original image was taken from an altitude of  6,627 miles above Mars. See how he created this image on his Flickr photostream here, and check out more images from the September 30th observation on the Mars Express blog here.
