Disappearing Ice In Color
Date: 19 Jun 2008
These color images were acquired by NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander's Surface Stereo Imager on the 21st and 25th days of the mission, or Sols 20 (left) and 24 (right) (15 and 19 June 2008).
These images show sublimation of ice in the trench informally called "Dodo-Goldilocks" over the course of four days.
In the lower left corner of the left image, a group of lumps is visible. In the right image, the lumps have disappeared, similar to the process of evaporation.
