This image was targeted to a dark spot seen in a MOC image that was suggested to be the Beagle 2 landing site (see Beagle 2 Landing Site Located? for more information).

The dark spot corresponds to an impact crater, which is shown in color here (795 x 712; 1.7 MB.) The European Beagle 2 lander was carried by the Mars Express orbiting spacecraft and released into the Martian atmosphere in December 2003, but has not been heard from since.
