NASA has released a ton of new photos of Mars. NASA’s space camera, called HiRISE, part of the Reconnaissance Orbiter, has been orbiting Mars for the last 10 years, all the while capturing photos as it drifts through the space surrounding the red planet.

HiRISE has taken some AMAZING photographs. Giving a full range of color to some photos that otherwise would have been just Red, the clarity of these photos are breathtaking. It is very easy to make out the landforms and regions of the planet, almost as if you were actually hovering above it yourself.

Here are some of the photos that have been released (all images via NASA):
