Today’s Image of the Day from the European Space Agency features a three-dimensional view of the Nereidum Mountain Range on Mars.

The digital illustration was created using data from the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on ESA’s Mars Express orbiter in 2015.

The picture features a dune field and two large craters with a canyon between them in the southern hemisphere of Mars.
