Mars

The Hubble snapped this image of Mars about 11 hours before it made its closest approach to Earth, making it closer than it has been in 60,000 years. It is the most detailed image ever taken of Mars and reveals surface details as small as 17 miles in diameter. The Hubble also serves as a weather station to monitor the atmospheric changes on this volatile planet.
