Image of the day looks at Mars again

A few days ago, I posted a Martian landscape. Today, we have another look at Mars, from a distance.

Here we have a nice view of Mars with the snow cap on the North Pole.

Another one showing the South Pole.

And in crescent view.

Except… this isn’t really Mars at all, but a sphere with a map of Mars wrapped around it. It’s really cool. You can turn it, and change the lighting, and move closer and further away (well–not THAT close because the resolution isn’t that great).
