Mars spacecraft spots “angelic figure” near South Pole ahead of Christmas

When Santa is ready Christmas on Earth At the North Pole of the Earth, the holiday spirit is taking place at Angels The South Pole of Mars. A spacecraft, a week before Christmas, has discovered a “figure of an angel” and a large heart at the South Pole.

This week, the European Space Agency’s high-resolution stereo camera on the Mars Express found “wings with angelic figure definition, full of halo,” and got a big heart next to it. A pair of festive silhouettes appear bright red, in stark contrast to the light color of the surrounding Matian sand.

According to the space agency, the dark color is due to the formation of an unglazed sand, which is composed of minerals found on Earth, such as pyroxene and olivine.

The South Pole itself, currently experiencing summer, is located just outside the frame, to the right of the scene. During the winter of Mars, the area will be in a cap of one mile thick and 250 miles wide – but, for now, ice stores are at their lowest annual level.

Officials said the angel’s hand, which appears to be reaching to the left, is probably a large accent pit – an indifference on the planet’s surface that turns to air as ice during the summer months.

The Earth’s head and halo appear to have formed when a celestial body crawled on the planet, showing satellite surfaces providing a glimpse of Mars’ long history. The heart is the result of a line of cliffs that form due to erosion.

The picturesque landscape also has the Mutian Dust Devils on the left side of the figure. The evil of the dust seen on the red stone, smokes the wind from the surface.

Mars’s South Pole has been under discussion in recent months after scientists discovered it. Three new underground lakes – and the possibility of more – indicates the probability of the existence of microbial life.
