Ready for another Where In The Universe Challenge? Here’s #95! Take a look and see if you can name where in the Universe this image is from. Give yourself extra points if you can name the spacecraft responsible for the image. We provide the image today, but won’t reveal the answer until tomorrow. This gives you a chance to mull over the image and provide your answer/guess in the comment section. Please, no links or extensive explanations of what you think this is — give everyone the chance to guess.
UPDATE: The answer is now posted below.
Mars or Earth? — that is the question! This is an image of Meteor Crater, also known as the Barringer Meteorite Crater, located near Winslow, Arizona, USA, planet Earth. This High Resolution Camera image, taken by ESA’s Proba satellite was taken on January 23, 2004. It shows the 1.186 km diameter crater is approximately 180 metres deep and is surrounded by a rim of smashed and jumbled boulders, some as big as houses. The shadow-casting structure visible on the north side of the Crater is the Visitor’s Center. Click here for a larger and uncropped version of the image.
