About this image

Amphitrites Patera is an old volcanic complex located south of Hellas Planitia. The surface in this VIS image has a unusual texture, one seen more commonly on the nearby south polar ice. The surface appears to be eroding in a fashion that creates small circular features which grow and coalesce into larger circles.
