In the past we’ve given you flowers and diamonds, and in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, today we present to you the various heart-shaped impressions found on Mars.
What else goes with hearts better than roses?
One of the winning entries of the ‘semi-professional’ category in the 2009 David Malin Awards came from Peter Ward for his image of the Rosette Nebula. Credit: Peter Ward.
Of course, if you’re not a fan Valentine’s Day, it’s always nice to remember that in the heart of many galaxies (including our own!) lies a big ol’ black hole.
Set against an ocean blue background, an irregular line of yellow and green splotches runs from the top left-hand corner to the bottom right-hand corner. In the bottom right hand corner there is a large red dot.
Happy Valentine’s Day (or not). xoxo
