Syrtis Major, discovered in 1659 by Christaan Huygens, is a volcanic province on Mars. The image is centred on approximately 16°N/73°E. The High-Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express collected the data for these images on 8 June 2011 during orbit 9487. The image combines data from the nadir channel and one stereo channel to produce this 3D image. Stereoscopic glasses are required to see the 3D effect.
