This is image of the Red Planet, snapped by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter shows blue sand dunes covering part of the Rabe crater, a 100-kilometre-diameter impact site in the planet's southern highlands.

This granular image reveals the thumbprint-like texture of the ridges, troughs and ripples formed there.
