Context Camera Mosaic of Fluvial Channels on Mars

Detailed Description

Mosaic of images from the Context Camera (CTX) on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), showing eroded craters and water-carved channels. The images in this mosaic are relatively controlled, meaning that they are aligned to each other. No photometric correction has been applied, and the images are averaged together where they overlap.
