Claritas Fossae
These Mars Express images show Claritas Fossae, an ancient tectonic region
on Mars, west of Solis Planum, a tectonic and volcanic area south-east of the
Tharsis volcano group.
The images were taken by the High-Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on
Mars in orbit 68 from an altitude of 271 km. The images are centred at 255.7
East and 30.9 North. North is on the left.

3D view
The above 3D image has been created from the nadir-channel (vertical view)
and one stereo-channel of the camera. North is again on the left. This image
requires stereoscopic glasses to view.
Claritas Fossae (high-res black and white)
The resolution of the black and white version (available as a very
high-resolution jpeg) is about 17 metres per pixel.
