About this image

Today's VIS image shows part of the extensive lava flows that comprise Daedalia Planum. These flows originate at Arsia Mons, the southernmost of the three large aligned volcanoes in the Tharsis region of Mars. The different surface textures relate to properties like viscosity and temperature of the molten lava as it flowed and then cooled into solid rock.
