This computer-generated perspective view was created using data obtained from the High-Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on ESA’s Mars Express. Centred at around 18°S and 288°E, this image has a ground resolution of about 18 m per pixel. The 16 km-wide impact crater and its associated butterfly-shaped ejecta blanket takes up most of this image. The shape of the crater and ejecta blanket indicates a low-angle impact by a comet or asteroid.
