Dark Light
Our objective is to learn more about some of the layers here in the 415-kilometer diameter Cassini Crater.

Cassini is located in the Arabia Terra region of Mars, which contains outcrops of layers in many locations and environments. Some of the layers in this image seem thicker than some others in Arabia, but others are quite thin, so even with a Context Camera image, differences can be noted.

Sunken and Pitted Ejecta

The objective of this observation was to examine the edge of impact ejecta from a crater to the north-west of this area (north is up, west is to the left).

An Impact Crater within Nanedi Valles

With this image, we can cross-dating the relative age of the impact with that of the valley system, as well as learning more about the fluvial and morphology characteristics of area.
