Martian impact crater Herschel based on THEMIS image
Herschel is 300 kilometers wide, so large that it is properly considered an impact basin. It is located in the cratered highlands of the Martian southern hemisphere, at 14.5°S, 230°W. Its floor was discovered by the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft to contain fields of dark sand dunes.
