Clark (Martian crater)
Clark Crater is a crater in the Phaethontis quadrangle of Mars, located at 55.6°S latitude and 133.4°W longitude. It is 98.0 km in diameter and was named after Alvan Clark, and the name was approved in 1973. Dunes are visible on the floor of the crater, and dust devil tracks are in the area. Both of these features can be seen in the pictures below. The thin, dark streaks are dust devil tracks.
