The line-of-sight distance to Mars on was 41 million kilometers, giving an image resolution of 460 km/pixel. The planet is roughly 34 arcseconds in diameter at this distance. The Tharsis region of Mars, home to the planet’s largest volcanoes, faces the spacecraft in this view. ESA / Roscosmos / ExoMars / CaSSIS / UniBE
