Baku, March 4, AZERTAC

China National Space Administration (CNSA) on Thursday released three high-definition images of Mars, two panchromatic images and one colored, captured by China's Mars probe, Tianwen-1, according to CGTN.

The panchromatic images were taken by the high-resolution camera on the probe at a distance of about 330 to 350 kilometers from the surface of Mars.

With a resolution of about 0.7 meters, the camera captured clear small craters, ridges, dunes and other features on the surface of Mars. The largest crater is estimated to be about 620 meters in diameter.

The color image was taken by a medium-resolution camera and shows the north polar region of Mars.
