This is the most recent of a series of images within the expected landing ellipse of the Beagle 2 lander, lost in late 2003.

We hope that someone will take the time to view the entire image at full resolution to search for any unusual small features that might have resulted from the landing attempt. For some helpful tips on what to look for, check this Web site.
