This frame, taken by the NASA - Mars Odyssey Orbiter on March 16, 2013, during its 49.920th orbit around the Red Planet, shows us a sinuous Unnamed Channel located in the Southern Hemisphere's Martian Region known as Terra Sabaea, near Hella Planitia.

This frame (which is an Original Mars Odyssey Orbiter b/w frame published on the NASA - Planetary Photojournal with the ID n. PIA 17092) has been additionally processed, magnified, contrast enhanced 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.
