Small Impact Crater

October 3, 2003
This May 2003 Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image provides a high resolution view (1.5 meters --5 feet --per pixel) of a small meteor crater near 28.0°N, 182.8°W. This crater is about 300 m (~980 feet) across, just under one-third the size of the famous Meteor Crater in northern Arizona, U.S.A. Boulders ejected by the impact dot the scene. Sunlight illuminates the crater from the lower left.
