This image provides a persective view of Tyrrhena Terra.
The western part of the scene is dominated by a 35 kilometre-wide and approximately 1000 metre-deep impact crater with an extremely cliffy and chiseled edge.
Another, 18 kilometre-long and approximately 750 metre-deep impact crater, in all likelihood a ‘double impact crater’, is located south of the large crater. These ‘double impact craters’ develop when two objects, part of a binary, hit the surface almost simultaneously.
The High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board ESA’s Mars Express obtained images of this region on 10 May 2007.
This perspective view has been calculated from the Digital Terrain Model derived from the HRSC stereo channels.
