Mars surface

A view of Eberswalde crater containing a rare case of a martian delta, with well preserved channels which fed the lake in the crater, located in the southern highlands of Mars, seen in this handout photograph acquired by Mars Express at approximately 25S / 326E during orbit 7208 on August 15, 2009 and released September 2, 2011. The delta deposits and channels together provide a clear indication of liquid surface water during the early history of Mars. The images have a ground resolution of about 22 m per pixel. Reuters
