Flooded Crater in Tagus Valles

This close-up perspective view focuses on the craters in the center of the main color image. Here, a smaller crater clearly overlies the older, larger crater. To the right in this orientation lies a heavily deformed crater. Nearby, a channel appears to flow from the crater – perhaps this once transported water and sediments from a crater lake.
