The surface and the moons of Mars
This animation shows the rotation of Mars over the course of 42 minutes and is based on observations made with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
While a host of Mars’s characteristic surface features are hidden by a planet-wide sandstorm, both the northern and southern polar ice caps are clearly visible.
The animation also shows the two tiny moons of Mars, Phobos and Deimos, orbiting the red planet.Credit:
