What has NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter seen around the polar regions of Mars? HiRise Images 4K

The MRO or the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has been scanning Mars with its special HiRise camera for over 10 years now. What has it seen during its mission? This video will focus on the polar regions of Mars.

This video could be a new format of video for this channel if it is successful. Not that I will be abandoning the other formats, but making videos like these will mean I can make videos more regularly for the channel so there isn’t such a gap between videos. Let me know what you think in the comments.

This is a shorter video as I’m currently concentrating on my final major project for uni. Expect to see that in by the end of May!

About the colours of the images, it is RGB colours and does somewhat resemble the colours on Mars (the other option was false colour IRB images). However, HiRise doesn’t take photos with just visible light, but rather with IR, RED, and BG channels which are displayed in red, green, and blue colours.
