Astronaut-eye view of Mars from orbit: A unique video tour of the Red Planet

The Mars Express VMC team here at ESOC are delighted to publish today’s special treat: a movie carefully compiled from 600 VMC images snapped during a single, complete 7-hour orbit on 27 May 2010. This video shows what future astronauts would likely see from their cockpit window: Mars turning below them as they sweep in orbit around the Red Planet, our beautiful planetary neighbour!
