Perseverance rover landing ellipse in Jezero crater
Jezero crater is 45 kilometers in diameter. The Perseverance rover landing site will be on the flat floor of the crater, just east of a dramatic ancient river delta.

The base image is H0988_0000, taken 29 July 2006 by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on ESA's Mars Express. A red/green/blue image was overlaid on a higher-resolution panchromatic image. Here is a version of the base image without markings at the full panchromatic resolution of 12.5 meters per pixel (PNG, 48MB)
