[left]: Here is the discovery image of the Martian polar storm as seen in blue light (410 nm). The storm is located near 65 deg. N latitude and 85 deg. W longitude, and is more than 1000 miles (1600 km) across. [upper right]: This is a color polar view of the north polar region, showing the location of the storm relative to the classical bright and dark features in this area.
