About this image

The major Martian dust storm of 2007 filled the sky with dust and produced conditions that prevented the THEMIS VIS camera from being able to image the surface. With no new images being acquired, we've dug into the archive to highlight some interesting areas on Mars. The this week's region is Noctis Labyrinthus. Noctis Labyrinthus is located at the western end of Valles Marineris. This maze-like feature of deep intersecting valleys was formed by tectonic forces and extensive faulting.
