Mars Express over an ice-filled crater
Mars Express over an ice-filled crater Artist’s impression of Mars Express set against a 35 km-wide crater in the Vastitas Borealis region of Mars at approximately 70.5°N / 103°E. The crater contains a permanent patch of water-ice that likely sits upon a dune field – some of the dunes are exposed towards the top left in this image. ESA / DLR / FU-Berlin-G.Neukum

The image of the crater was acquired on 2 February 2005 with a ground resolution of approximately 15 metres per pixel.
