This image from ESA’s Mars Express shows Terra Cimmeria, a region found in the southern highlands of Mars. It comprises data gathered on 11 December 2018 during Mars Express Orbit 18904. The ground resolution is approximately 13 metres per pixel and the images are centred at about 171° East and 40° South. This image was created using data from the nadir and colour channels of the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC). The nadir channel is aligned perpendicular to the surface of Mars, as if looking straight down at the surface. North is to the right.
