Description

This view of Mars, the sharpest photo ever taken from Earth, reveals small craters and other surface markings only about a dozen miles (a few tens of kilometres) across. (The spatial scale is 5 miles, or 8 kilometres per pixel). The Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) aboard NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope snapped this image on August 24 2003, just a few days before the red planet's historic "close encounter" with Earth.
