Caption

Mars. Mosaic of images collected by the Viking I and II space probes of a region on Mars centred on 15 degrees latitude south and 305 degrees longitude. The image covers an area of 45 degrees in longitude and 30 degrees in latitude. It shows a heavily cratered region which is a typical feature of most of the southern hemisphere of the planet. Huygens at centre left, is the largest crater seen here with a diameter of about 500 km. Viking I and II were launched in August and September 1975 respectively and they both landed on the martian surface in the following year.
