This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a small meteor impact crater (approximately the size of the famous Meteor Crater in northern Arizona) with a bright wind streak on its west (left) side. Generally, winds blowing from the east (right) have stripped away bright dust everywhere but in the lee of the crater. These landforms are located in eastern Kasei Valles near 25.1N, 60.8W. The picture covers an area about 3 km (1.9 mi) wide. Sunlight illuminates the scene from the left/lower left.
