A group of 16 California 7-th graders, from Evergreen Middle School, were participating in The Mars Student Imaging Program when they made a rare find. They spotted a pit crater in one of the pictures they commissioned. Pit craters are basically a skylight on the roof of a cave.
"This pit is certainly new to us," Cushing told the students. "And it is only the second one known to be associated with Pavonis Mons."
Way to go kids!
