In this truly nice VIS image, taken by the NASA - Mars Odyssey Orbiter on October, 26th, 2010, and during its 39.326th orbit around the Red Planet, we can see (once again) a small portion of the Martian Sub-Region known as Capri Mensa.

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 20769) has been additionally processed, magnified to aid the visibility of the details, extra-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.
