About this image

At the westernmost end of the enormous Valles Marineris canyon system lies the ruptured landscape known as Noctis Labyrinthus. As the name implies, it is a labyrinth of interconnected canyons that probably results from faulting, collapse, and landslides. The image shows that these canyons are mantled by a thick layer of dust.
