Thanks for that Rajan!

Here's the full sized, 21MP shot from NASA's gallery...

Will add it to the long list of cool space shots I would like to put up somewhere but don't have room for.

Space photography has certainly come a long way since this 1965 Mariner shot, the first closeup image of Mars and probably the first digital image I ever saw.  Was hoping for Grecian-esque ruins, but got craters instead.
