Mars is a place of both mystery and beauty. There is perhaps no other place in our Solar System that has excited the imagination. It is one of the few places in our Solar System that has the potential to harbor life. The red planet has been photographed, poked, and prodded by a fleet of spacecraft over the last few decades. And we are only now just beginning to crack some of its secrets. The images in this gallery have been hand-selected by Sea and Sky for their visual beauty and represent some of the best views ever obtained of plane Mars and its moons.
