Snow floats on the surface of the southern crater on Mars in the new image of the Red Planet.
The High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) on NASA Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) photograph of Mars’ frosty surface8, e.g. a word from the company.
Winter on Mars it can be very cold, with temperatures dropping near the poles to as low as 195 degrees Fahrenheit (less than 125 degrees Celsius). In search, a layer of carbon dioxide ice, or dry ice, can form on the surface of some parts of the world.

During the middle of the four winter months, snow can spread from the poles to the mid -latitudes of the stars, or around 50 degrees latitude, where they begin to melt under the warm rays of the sun. . This is similar to the latitude of southern Canada on Earth, according to NASA.
Visitors can see small chunks of ice on the cliffs facing the pole near the equator. These places have cold temperatures because the carbon dioxide ice is not melted.
The latest HiRISE photo of Mars’ Southern Hemisphere was taken in the middle of winter. The image depicts a volcano at approximately 37 degrees south latitude.
The south cliff the second sprayed with a glittering ice of carbon dioxide, which can be seen in blue in the color image magnified from the orbiter. The photograph shows dry snow in and around valleys on the cliff, which have been cut by rubble streams created during the warmer months.
