This image shows Syrtis Major central on the disk with the Hellas Basin below it, Tyrrhenna Terra and Hesperium to the lower right of it, and Sebaeus Sinus to the left of it and Sinus Meridiani emerging around the left limb. The "Face of Mars" is a visible in the Hellas Basin, an upside triangular-shaped face, apparently a new feature caused by shifting dust. Terra Cimmeria is disappearing around the western limb.
