Dawn Mons, Mars Webcam, June 27, 2020

At 17:52:18 UTC the VMC Mars Webcam on board the Mars Express, took this picture of Mars from an altitude of 9853.22 km.
The right pane of this image shows us an elevation map of the Red Planet oriented very similarly to the photo taken by the Mars Express.
There is noticeable activity associated with the Alba Mons volcano, for the moment of unknown origin.
More information will be provided as it becomes available.
The original image has undergone noise reduction, white balance and a slight increase in microcontrast in order to make the colors more similar to what the human eye would see.
