In this also (just like yesterday's one) extremely clear and suggestive VIS image, taken by the NASA - Mars Odyssey Orbiter on December, 8th, 2009, and during its 35.415th orbit around the Red Planet, we can see part of the Martian Region known as Tyrrhena Terra. The top of the image looks inside the Complex (and with a truly uneven Pedestal and Inner Terracing) Impact Crater known as Savich Crater, while the low, dusty and flat Sub-Region visible at the bottom of the frame is named Peraea Cavus.

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 20429) 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.
