A spacecraft has spotted an "angelic figure" and a large heart at the Martian south pole, nbcnews reports.

This week, the High-Resolution Stereo Camera on the European Space Agency's Mars Express captured the "defined wings of an angelic figure, complete with halo," as well as a large heart next to it. The pair of festive silhouettes appear bright red, in stark contrast to the light tan color of the Martian sand surrounding them.

According to the space agency, the dark color is due to the composition of the sand dunes, which are made up of minerals also found on Earth, such as pyroxene and olivine.
