Artist's impression of Mars' magnetosphere

Artist's impression of Mars' magnetosphere

This artist's impression shows the magnetosphere of Mars.

Unlike Earth, which has an internal magnetic field, Mars lacks a planet-wide magnetic field so the martian magnetosphere is smaller than the terrestrial one.
