|This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows two craters that formed at the same time by a split meteoritic impactor. Long after they formed, these craters have been eroded, degraded, and other materials have been deposited on and within them.|

Malin Space Science Systems and the California Institute of Technology built the MOC using spare hardware from the Mars Observer mission. MSSS operates the camera from its facilities in San Diego, California. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Mars Surveyor Operations Project operates the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft with its industrial partner, Lockheed Martin Astronautics, from facilities in Pasadena, California and Denver, Colorado.
