The MRO's HiRISE snapshot doesn’t take pictures in natural color, but it helps to highlight the landscape features of Mars
Admire this miracle. NASA's MRO orbital station received a view of the Martian crater, which resembles an eye gazing at you from space. The HiRISE camera team published on October 19 two different views of the crater. One showed a feature in black and white, and the second presented an improved color close-up. It seems that this is the eye of a reptile against the background of a rocky landscape.
Interestingly, even in black and white color crater stands out from its own terrain. Members of the team signed: “This crater is hypnotizing”. Do not worry, because the Martian reptilians did not inhabit the Red Planet. Mars has many features that can lead to the effect of paradolia, a phenomenon that makes you see recognizable patterns and shapes in ordinary objects. The MRO monitors the North Polar Region of Mars to find out if they are gaining a lot of sediment or losing it. NASA reports that the polar layers are composed of dusty water ice with a thickness of 3 km. Erosion and other natural processes are able to form exotic formations and expose sites of ancient craters. The MRO arrived on Mars in 2006 and is studying the surface to find out more information about the history of the planet’s water.
