This red wide angle Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image, acquired in March 2004, shows Kunowsky Crater ringed by seasonal frost. Kunowsky is about 67 km (~42 mi) in diameter. Wavy clouds form to the east (right) of the crater in early spring as winds circulate from west to east. The crater is located at 57.1N, 9.7W. The picture is illuminated by sunlight from the lower left.
