New crater on Mars

New crater on Mars photoNew crater on Mars, this was created within the last couple of years as photographed by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

The crater itself is circular, but the blast of ejecta indicates that the object came in from the West, and struck the surface of Mars, blasting out a curtain of pulverized rock that covered the nearby surface. The impactor would have vaporized into a fireball of superheated rock, like a nuclear bomb exploding on the surface of Mars, while the eject blanket was shot out to the side.
