This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows fine details in the walls and floor of a meteor impact crater located immediately west of the Lycus Sulci ridged terrain, northwest of the volcano, Olympus Mons. The walls of the crater exhibit the finely-detailed layering of the local bedrock. This crater is centered near 31.4Â°N, 147.7Â°W. The image covers an area approximately 3 km (1.9 mi) across and is illuminated by sunlight from the lower left.
