Mars in 3-D at Flagstaff's Lowell Observatory

There is so much planetary geology being done from Arizona lately, I wonder if I should change the name of my blog.

Now, besides Phoenix Mars Lander, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter HiRISE camera, lunar rovers, ASU's meteorite collection, and Mercury MESSENGER, we can add the news that a traveling exhibit of 3-D images of Mars from the European Space Agency's Mars Express Spacecraft opened this past Saturday at the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff.

The Lowell Observatory blog says the exhibit themes include water, ice, tectonics, volcanoes, atmosphere and erosion.

A New Perspective on Mars will be displayed at Lowell through December 3.

Thanks to Coconino Chronicles blog for spotting this.
