Schiaparelli in perspective
January 3, 2011
Schiaparelli is a large impact basin about 460 km across, located in the eastern Terra Meridiani region of the planet's equator. This perspective image from the High-Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA's Mars Express is focused on a smaller 42 km-diameter crater embedded in its rim. The interior of the crater is filled with sediments.
