In this really nice VIS image, taken by the NASA - Mars Odyssey Orbiter on January, 30th, 2016, and during its 62.671st orbit around the Red Planet, we can see, given that the Northern Margin of the Martian Region known as Terra Sabaea, has numerous Channels, a relatively small portion of one of those which are still Unnamed

Note: a realistic (---> Absolute Natural) coloring, here, has been particularly difficult to achieve due to the fact that the Original Picture was slightly overexposed.

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 20451) has been additionally processed, magnified to aid the visibility of the details, extra-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.
