The China National Space Administration (CNSA) on Friday released two new images of Mars captured by the country's Tianwen-1 probe, informs The Xinhua News Agency.

In the images, Mars is crescent-shaped with a clear surface texture.

When the Tianwen-1 probe was 11,000 km away from Mars on the far side of the planet to the sun, it took panoramic photos of Mars with a medium-resolution camera onboard.
