About this image

Today's VIS image shows a portion of the floor of an unnamed crater in Arabia Terra. Like several other craters on Mars, including the nearby Henry Crater, this crater contains a large mound of material that filled a large part of the crater floor. This mound has been subsequently eroded by the wind. These materials were brought into the crater sometime after the impact that formed the crater.
