Images from India's Mars Orbiter Mission

Here are the first couple of images ISRO has released to the public:

The first image is, ironically, of the Indus Vallis.

Re: Images from India's Mars Orbiter Mission

India's MOM has sent back a picture of Mars in full glory:

A large dust storm can be seen in the upper left of the image, which was taken from 74500km out.

Because of its unique elongated orbit, MOM is able to take pictures of the red planet in its entirety in a way that other spacecraft from Earth aren't able to do.

Man, I didn't hear about India's Mars Orbiter Mission until now. Glad I came across this one.
