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 53°S and 334°E, the image has a ground resolution of about 20 m per pixel. This perspective view shows the breach on the northern side of the 50 km-wide crater that dominates the image. Dendritic patterns link to completely filled-in craters that flank the larger one, within which a small sand dune follows the contours of concentric sedimentary pattern. This image was taken during revolution 10778 on 18 June 2012.
