About this image

This VIS image of part of the Sirenum Fossae shows an important interaction. The small crater in the center of the image is cut by a large fracture of the fossae system while the ejecta of the crater covers a small fracture just northwest of the crater. This image indicates that the fracture system was active both before and after the time of the impact and crater creation.
