The Many Features of Jezero

Contributed by Sanna Alwmark

This Mastcam-Z Left Filter 0 (RGB) natural color image was taken on Sol 382 (March 18, 2022).

This is one of my favorite Mastcam-Z images because it is simply beautiful, and because of all the fantastic features of Jezero crater that we see in it. Closest in view are rocks of the Jezero crater floor followed by sedimentary rocks of the western delta. Then, my favorite part of the image, the sloping crater rim of the huge Jezero crater, carved by the ancient river that flowed through Neretva Vallis into the crater, slowly but steadily building the western delta.
