ESP_039581_1520_1.0xA piece of Mars: Yes, I post a lot of pictures of martian dunes with striped patterns. They’re all distinct and beautiful. So here’s another one, 480×270 m (0.3×0.17 mi) in size. These beasts moved from right to left across the scene, some of them leaving behind some stripey deposits in their wake. (HiRISE ESP_039581_1520, NASA/JPL/Univ. of Arizona)

    What beasts moved from right to left across the scene? Wind?

    I am thrilled to have stumbled across your blog…just booked attendance at a library Mars lecture and then happened upon your blog. Now I can review your photos before the lecture. Thank you for posting your research.
