What appear to be spiders scampering across the martian landscape are actually cracks in the surface of the southern polar region on Mars, seen by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on August 23, 2009. Caused as carbon dioxide ice evaporates and escapes into the atmosphere, there is no escaping that these "araneiform" features look like our 8 legged friends!

A rock with a white edge and a red center reminds us of a jelly donut in a box from the local donut shop in this image taken by Opportunity on February 4, 2014. Named "pinnacle Island" by Opportunity's science team, this rock mysteriously appeared in an image where it had not been 4 days earlier. Scientists believe that opportunity drove over and broke a rocks in the upper part of this image, sending that piece of pastry rolling downhill.
