This image, of a region on the northern edge of Magellan Crater, was acquired from an altitude of 500 kilometres on 6 February 2009 during orbit 6547 and has a resolution of about 25 metres per pixel. The images show an area at 34°S and 185°E. Measuring about 190 kilometres by 112 kilometres, the area shown covers about 21,280 square kilometres, which is about the size of Slovenia. It is to the southwest of the volcanic region Tharsis on the southern highlands of Mars. The image was derived from the HRSC nadir channel, which provides the highest resolution of all the channels.
