This picture was taken on December 1, 2003, with the High-Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on the Mars Express spacecraft. At the time the picture was taken, Mars Express was roughly 5.5 million kilometers from the Red Planet. The Sun shines on part of the western hemisphere, but more than a third of the martian disk lies in darkness. The dark features at the top are part of the planet's northern lowlands.
