About this image

Today's VIS image shows part of the western half of Jezero Crater. The Perserverance Rover is located in this part of the crater – near the delta deposit (upper right side of image) formed by the influx of silt laden water into the crater at a time during Mars' past that was wetter. The crater most likely hosted a lake for a period of time. Jezero Crater is 47km (29 miles) in diameter.
