This red wide angle Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a wavy cloud pattern formed in the lee of Korolev Crater, located near 72.8N, 195.7W. Korolev Crater is about 85 km (53 mi) in diameter and named for Sergei P. Korolev, a pioneering Russian rocket designer and engineer who died in the mid-1960s. The image, acquired in late northern summer, is illuminated by sunlight from the lower left.
