o Beautiful Layers in the Central Uplift of Mazamba Crater
  This is only one of four impact craters known that possesses intact
  layers exposed in the central uplift.

o Enigmatic Channels on the Floor of Mangala Valles
  This particular area, called Mangala Valles and located near the Tharsis
  region, is may be an example of the action of liquid water in the past.

o Martian Thunderbird

  This non-circular pit is due to low angle impact from an asteroid or comet.

o Spring Slide

  The North Polar region of Mars is capped with layers of water ice and dust,
  called the "polar layered deposits." This permanent polar cap is covered in
  the winter with a layer of seasonal carbon dioxide ice.
