About this image

Just like yesterday's crater, this crater was an obstacle to material flowing around it. In this case the material is lava from the Arsia Mons volcano. The diverted flows formed a downhill 'tail' south of the crater. This tail is a depression where lava failed to fill in the region behind the crater.
