About this image

THEMIS has taken some great pictures of Valles Marineris, the largest canyon in the solar system. If this canyon were on Earth, it would stretch from New York to Los Angeles. For the next several weeks, the Image of the Day will tour some of the canyons that make up this vast system. We will start with Ius Chasma in the west, and end with Coprates Chasma to the east.
The image shows a part of Candor Chasma. Gullies, layered rock deposits and wind etched surfaces are all visible in this area.

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