About this image

This is a VIS image of the same location on the flank of Olympus Mons as the IR images of the past two days. At the higher resolution of the visible imager it is easy to see individual lava flows. Note that many flows have a central channel with raised edges and are fairly narrow, this is due to the slope of the volcano that the flow is running down.
