Hi all,

here is an image of a recent meteorite impact on the planet Mars.

Scientists that study the images from the MRO spacecraft, (Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter)
in orbit around Mars have recently found a new impact on the planet.
The meteor hit the planet sometime between July 2010 and May 2012.

Debris from the impact has been thrown as far as 9.3 miles (15 kilometers)

The crater in the image is about 30 meters in diameter, or about 100 feet.
