Mars Opposition

Here as some of the photos I took when the planet Mars was nearest to Earth.

The photo below is taken almost a week after the Mars Opposition and the polar ice caps are clearly resolved.  Although I’m not sure but the mountain seen on the image can be the Olympus Mons, the highest mountain in Mars and almost two times higher than Mount Everest here on Earth.  The dark region are the canyons and probably the Valles Mariners, and by comparison here on Earth with the Grand Canyon, the Valles Mariners is 4x deeper.
