About this image

This branching valley with nearby crater brings to mind many calm landscape pictures showing a moonrise behind a tree, which lead to the initial release of this image as a THEMIS Art image. The fractures and collapse features in this image are related to the volcanic activity of the Tharsis region.

Please see the THEMIS Data Citation Note for details on crediting THEMIS images.
