Caption: Twin craters, Mars, satellite image. Two craters side by side in the Thaumasia Planum region south of Valles Marineris. Each crater was caused by a separate impact and each measures 50 kilometers in diameter. Both craters contain a central pit which is a common feature among high velocity impacts. The image data is from the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board the European Space Agency's (ESA) Mars Express Orbiter. For the same image with the elevations colour-coded with a Digital Terrain Model (DTM), see C023/2977.
