o A Surprise Landslump in Melas Chasma

  In one of our most recent images of this site, there was
  a surprise a new dark streak just down slope from recurring
  slope lineae.

o Equatorial Gullies on Mars

  Although gullies are most common in the middle latitudes of
  Mars, they are also found in equatorial regions.

o A Big Block of Red Bedrock

  These blocks could be ejecta from the ancient Hellas impact or
  other large impacts from billions of years ago.

o Curiosity Ready to Drill for Gold at the Kimberley

  This new image of the Curiosity (MSL) shows the rover approaching
  one of many geologically young scarps that are of interest to scientists.

All of the HiRISE images are archived here:
