Next up on Weather Channel:Mars...

Great work machi. I always find it incredible to see such similar weather on such different worlds.

Nice! I like the faster versions.

And I see a strong resemblance to the symbol used for hurricanes.

That is REALLY cool.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

...And here is Mangala Vallis as seen in 1980 by Viking orbiter 1 : one of its last images taken before the end of its mission. I saw the building of this mosaic at JPL in 1982 and at this time, Marcia Neugebauer (working in Conway Snyder's team) did all the photographic prints with geometric corrections + their careful pasting together with glue (!) into a large mosaic to be photographed again. It was a stunning mosaic to see at JPL (it was a BIG one) at ground floor of Building 264 (then dubbed the "Viking Building"). It was presented by the few Mars enthusiasts left then and had a lot of succcess among visitors and planetary geologists... There are a lot of stories to tell about the profound implications this picture had on future programs, such as MGCO (shortened as MO, then MGS)... Now you see it (reduced at 30% of its original size to fill in the Forum), with pictures pasted together with modern computer techniques (not glue...) and then colorized. Enjoy ! smile.gif

... And here is Olympus Mons enshrouded by its calm afternoon clouds.
This famous Martian perspective from Viking orbiter 1, which hand-made mosaic was published everywhere in 1976,
is now revisited in 2011 with modern computer techniques. Enjoy ! smile.gif

These pictures are great considering they used tube cameras.

Two "new" Olympus Mons images from Viking Orbiter 1 on my blog.
I added english captions to images, because Google translator is even worse in translations, than I'm smile.gif.

I just found, that Picasa (gallery for blogspot) limits image size to 1600 pixels. mad.gif
So I downloaded both Olympus Mons images on alternative server - global view, detailed view (19 MB!).
