This image shows a new impact site creatively rescued by a Context Camera onboard MRO. The void is on a dry slope, that also has several dim slope streaks due to dirt avalanches.
A previous impact during another place on Mars triggered a vital dirt avalanche, though this one did not. This tells us that a dirt here is some-more fast (stronger and/or on a reduce slope).
The map is projected here during a scale of 25 centimeters (9.8 inches) per pixel. [The strange picture scale is 27.1 centimeters (9.8 inches) per pixel (with 1 x 1 binning); objects on a sequence of 81 centimeters (30 inches) opposite are resolved.] North is up.
