High-Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) nadir and colour channel data taken during revolution 10778 on 18 June 2012 by ESA’s Mars Express have been combined to form a natural-colour view of Charitum Montes. Centred at around 53°S and 334°E, the image has a ground resolution of about 20 m per pixel. The heavily cratered region in this image is at the edge of the almost 1000 km long mountain range, which itself wraps around the boundary of the Argyre impact basin, the second largest on Mars.
