circular crater seen from above

NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter imaged this relatively young, ice-filled crater near the north pole of Mars in December 2019. The HiRISE camera aboard the orbiter can resolve very fine details on the surface — this crater is only about 650 feet (200 meters) across.
