A Second Look at the Zhurong Lander

A Second Look at the Zhurong Lander
The Chinese Tianwen-1 mission landed in southern Utopia Planitia on 14 May 2021. HiRISE acquired images on 6 June and this one on 11 June. The landing site remains distinctly colored from removal of Martian dust during landing and movement of the Zhurong rover toward the south can be seen when comparing the two images.

This second image also allows us to create a three-dimensional stereo view. Stereo anaglyphs of the lander and parachute can be viewed with red/blue glasses and reveal gently rolling plains.
