Caption: Maunder Crater, Mars, satellite image. North is at left. This is an overhead stereo-colour image of the Maunder Crater, which lies in the Noachis Terra region of Mars. This crater, named after the British astronomer Edward W. Maunder, is around 90 kilometres across. It is relatively shallow (900 metres) because it has been filled with debris. This is thought to be due to landslides and water seepage. The dark features are large sand dunes. The image data is from the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board the European Space Agency's (ESA) Mars Express Orbiter.
