crow: Clouds on Mars, photographed by Mars Express, 4th October 2010.
36 to 43°S, 274 to 276°E on the highlands south of Solis Planum. The Coracis Fossae are somewhat visible at right running vertically down the image.
Coracis is derived from corax, the Latin name of the raven; thus the scientific name of the common or northern raven, Corvus corax.
Animation of 5 monochrome frames, colourized with a composite of 3 visible light images. The colour balance is not naturalistic, but probably close enough here.
