About this image

Today's VIS image shows a portion of Daedalia Planum. Daedalia Planum is a huge lava flow field that originates at Arsia Mons, the southermost of the three large aligned Tharsis region volcanoes. Individual lava flows can have lengths up to almost 180 km (~111 miles). The longest Hawaiian lava flow is only 51 km (~31 miles). The total area of Daedalia Planum is 2.9 million square km – more than four times the size of Texas.
