Caption: Prehistoric Schiaparelli Crater. Artwork of an aerial view of this large impact crater as it may have appeared around one billion years ago, at a time when water is thought to have been present on Mars. Mud is shown partially filling the crater. This crater, one of the largest on Mars at a diameter of 461 kilometres, was named after the Italian astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli (1835-1910). The crater was named by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) in honour of Schiaparelli's work in observing Mars by telescope. The crater is located in the Sinus Sabaeus area of the Martian equator.
