o A Polar Smile

  If you smile at Mars, sometimes it smiles back.

o Strange Flow: Landslide, Impact Melt or Lava?

  Scientists are trying to determine if these deposits
  represent materials deposited by a massive landslide,
  an impact crater or a nearby volcanic event.

o A Recent Impact in Elysium Planitia

  This image shows a new impact crater in Elysium Planitia
  that was first discovered by the Mars Context Camera.

o The Eastern Portion of Cerberus Fossae

  Visible in this observation is a section of Cerberus Fossae
  which are comprised of a series of rifts present located in
  Elysium Planitia, just north the Martian equator.

All of the HiRISE images are archived here:
