In this highly suggestive VIS image, taken by the NASA - Mars Odyssey Orbiter on May, 25th, 2003, and during its 6.400th orbit around the Red Planet, we can see an Unnamed Impact Crater located (with a small ad deeply eroded Pedestal on its Western Side) which is located - like the one we showed you in yesterday's APOD - in the ancient Martian Region known as Terra Cimmeria.

This image (which is an Original Mars Odyssey Orbiter falsely colored and Map-Projected frame published on the NASA - Planetary Photojournal with the ID n. PIA 19264) has been additionally processed, magnified to aid the visibility of the details, contrast enhanced and sharpened, Gamma corrected and then re-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.
