NASA Mars orbiter examining dramatic new crater
Washington, Feb. 6 : NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter clicked image shows a crater about 100 feet (30 meters) in diameter at the center of a radial burst painting the surface with a pattern of bright and dark tones.
The scar appeared at some time between imaging of this location by the orbiter's Context Camera in July 2010 and again in May 2012.
Based on apparent changes between those before-and-after images at lower resolution, researchers used HiRISE to acquire this new image on Nov. 19, 2013.
The impact that excavated this crater threw some material as far as 9.3 miles (15 kilometers).
