Meridiani Planum, at the northern edge of the Southern Highlands of Mars. The region is located at about 2°N, 352°E and lies between the volcanic Tharsis region to the west and the low-lying Hellas Planitia impact basin to the southeast. Meridiani Planum spans 127 x 63 kilometres, equivalent to an area of roughly 8000 square kilometres, about the size of Cyprus.
