Phlegra Montes Crater
Today's image shows a portion of Phlegra Montes, a region of hills and ridges near Arcadia Planitia. Near the center of the image is a small impact crater, easily identified by it's radial ejecta pattern. This crater is relatively young. With time the radial nature of the ejecta will become less distinct.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory manages the 2001 Mars Odyssey mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington, D.C. The Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) was developed by Arizona State University, Tempe, in collaboration with Raytheon Santa Barbara Remote Sensing. The THEMIS investigation is led by Dr. Philip Christensen at Arizona State University. Lockheed Martin Astronautics, Denver, is the prime contractor for the Odyssey project, and developed and built the orbiter. Mission operations are conducted jointly from Lockheed Martin and from JPL, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.
