Prominent martian features are pointed out in this infrared view of Mars.


Mars in the Infrared (Annotated)

This near-infrared image was taken with the 3.8-meter United Kingdom Infrared Telescope (UKIRT). The dark markings resemble those seen at visible wavelengths, but the south polar cap (at the bottom of the picture) is less prominent as its ice absorbs at infrared wavelengths. The slight green colour around the polar cap is a result of ice absorption.
