Mars Art: HiRISE Dust Devils and Dusty Dunes
Posted by Ryan Anderson
It’s been a while since I posted any “Mars art” but I just came across this Bad Astronomy post and had to share. The short explanation of the photo is that dust devils spiraling across these sand dunes have removed the red dust but left behind dark sand in artistic swirls. For a more detailed description, check out Bad Astronomy, and to take a closer look at the image itself, head on over to the HiRISE site.
I saw some bad tattoos like that in Vegas.
