Eberswalde Crater

Natural color image of the 65 km diameter Ebserswalde Crater. The southwestern half of the crater has been buried by ejecta deposits from the 140 km Holden Crater. This crater formerly hosted a lake with a delta system, and was considered as a landing site for both the Curiosity and Mars 2020 missions.


This image combines a mosaic of monochrome Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter CTX images with ~6 m/px resolution with color imagery from the Mars Express HRSC instrument, which has a color resolution of ~100 m/px. The base CTX mosaic has been downscaled to 80% of its original size for file size limits, producing a mosaic with ~7m/px resolution. The large mismatch in resolution creates some color artifacts, especially near sharp boundaries.
