English: NASA's Hubble Space Telescope took the picture of Mars on June 26, 2001, when Mars was approximately 68 million kilometers (43 million miles) from Earth — the closest Mars has ever been to Earth since 1988. Hubble can see details as small as 16 kilometers (10 miles) across. The colors have been carefully balanced to give a realistic view of Mars' hues as they might appear through a telescope. Especially striking is the large amount of seasonal dust storm activity seen in this image. One large storm system is churning high above the northern polar cap (top of image), and a smaller dust storm cloud can be seen nearby. Another large dust storm is spilling out of the giant Hellas impact basin in the Southern Hemisphere (lower right).
Русский : Космический телескоп NASA «Хаббл» сделал этот снимок Марса 26 июня 2001 года, когда Марс был на расстоянии около 68 миллионов километров (43 миллиона миль) от Земли, — ближе к Земле Марс никогда не был с 1988 года. «Хаббл» смог «разглядеть» детали размером до 16 км (10 миль) в поперечнике. Цвета были тщательно сбалансированы, чтобы передать настолько реалистичный вид оттенков Марса, насколько их можно было бы передать через земной орбитальный телескоп. Особенно на этом снимке бросается в глаза большая активность сезонных пылевых штормов. Один большой штормовой фронт бушует высоко над северной полярной шапкой (верхняя часть изображения), рядом можно увидеть меньше пылевое облако. Другая большая пыльная буря выдувает из гигантского ударного бассейна Эллада в южном полушарии (справа внизу).
