A newly released image of Mars shows an icy scene, with ribbons of red and white dancing across an icy landscape near the planet’s south pole.

While the snowy scene can evoke the feeling of a “winter wonderland”. red planetit was actually captured by the European Space Agency’s Mars Express orbiter on May 19. This means that the icy image actually represents spring in the southern hemisphere of Mars and that the Martian ice has begun to recede.
