Today's APOD is a frame taken by the NASA - Mars Odyssey Orbiter which shows us several small-sized Unnamed Craters with Windstreaks and a Lava Flow that has penetrated inside the relatively large (and, in our opinion, as IPF, also relatively fresh) Unnamed Crater visible on the left side of the image; all these Surface Features are located in the the dark Martian Region known as Syrtis Major.

This frame (which is an Original Mars Odyssey Orbiter b/w frame published on the NASA - Planetary Photojournal with the ID n. PIA 16437) has been additionally processed and then colorized in Absolute Natural Colors (such as the colors that a human eye would actually perceive if someone were onboard the NASA - Mars Odyssey Orbiter and then looked down, towards the Surface of Mars), by using an original technique created - and, in time, dramatically improved - by the Lunar Explorer Italia Team.
