Martian Avalances Caught in the Act

Image Credit NASA/JPL-Caltech/University of Arizona.

This is amazing, an avalanche on the escarpment of the Martian North Pole caught by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. You can get an abbreviated description at the NASA Science Page, and a full description at the MRO site. If you are feeling active you can dig out the before images and make a comparison with the avalanche images. Tom also has a story on this, as does the Bad Astronomer.

The MRO also has a fantastic image of Earth and the Moon taken from Mars. The Bad Astronomer also has a story on that.
