A vast cavity on the Red Planet looks back at ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) with an icy stare in this sweeping panorama. The crater sits in Utopia Planitia, the largest known impact basin in the Solar System with a diameter of roughly 3300 km, or twice the size of Earth’s Sahara Desert from north to south. 

The region is known to scientists for showing intriguing ice-related features on and below the surface, including frost on the surface during the martian winter.
