This black-and-white image shows a large crater and small crater on the surface of Mars in three views, in which the craters are in slightly different positions relative to the middle of each of the three frames. It simulates what the camera might see as it moved horizontally through the atmosphere during descent.  A sunflower-petal-like blanket of ejected rocks and soil surround the dark hole of the bright rimmed crater.
