This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) high resolution image shows part of the boulder-strewn surface of an ejecta deposit from a meteor impact crater in Noachis Terra at 49.7S, 341.6W. The impact process ejects bouldery debris from the crater and deposits it all around the outside of the crater. Sunlight illuminates the scene from the upper left.
