In this VIS image, taken by the NASA - Mars Odyssey Orbiter on January, 26th, 2015, and during its 58.199th orbit around the Red Planet, we can see a small section of Tader Valles (a set of small Channels found in the Phaethontis Quadrangle of Mars, and centered at 49,1° South Latitude and 152,5° West Longitude), which is located in the Southern's Hemisphere's dusty and uneven Martian Region known as Terra Sirenum.

Latitude (centered): 48,5206° South
Longitude (centered): 206,7570° East
Instrument: VIS

This image (which is an Original Mars Odyssey Orbiter b/w and Map-Projected frame published on the NASA - Planetary Photojournal with the ID n. PIA 19257) has been additionally processed, magnified to aid the visibility of the details, contrast enhanced and sharpened, Gamma corrected and then colorized in Absolute Natural Colors (such as the colors that a normal 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.
