Description:

9 October 2004 Schiaparelli Basin is a large, 470 kilometer (~292 miles) impact crater located east of Sinus Meridiani. The basin might once have been the site of a large lake--that is, if the sedimentary rocks exposed on its northwestern floor were deposited in water. This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a 1.5 meter per pixel (5 ft per pixel) view of some of the light-toned, finely-bedded sedimentary rocks in northwestern Schiaparelli. The image is located near 1.0S, 346.0W, and covers an area about 3 km (1.9 mi) wide. Sunlight illuminates the scene from the left.
