Dark Light
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).

The ejecta visible in the top left of this image seems to be lower than the surrounding surface.

This is unusual because impact ejecta is laid down on top of existing ground. The ejecta also seems to have pits. Perhaps the hot ejecta fell on frozen ground and melted the underlying ice?

This image covers a portion of a typical impact crater in Terra Sirenum at about 40 degrees south latitude on Mars.

Secondary Craters

This image of a southern mid-latitude crater was intended to investigate the lineated material on the crater floor. At the higher resolution of HiRISE, the image reveals a landscape peppered by small impact craters.

A Scarp in the Arabia Region

Pictured here appears to be the edge of a blast radius of a large meteorite impact crater with smaller and more recent cratering interrupting its circumference.
