Breached Crater Rim in Coloe Fossae

This image shows an impact crater with a diameter of approximately 2 kilometers located in the Coloe Fossae region of Mars.

It is partially filled with a sediment flow that has breached the south rim and continues northwards for approximately 4 kilometers before abruptly terminating in a rounded lobe of blocky material.
