About this image

The Tharsis province of Mars was the main center of volcanism on the planet. This THEMIS visible image shows lava flows that appear to be originating from linear vents just east of Pavonis Mons, the middle of the three giant Tharsis volcanoes. A large volume of lava also appears to be flowing out of a smaller series of pits on the far eastern side of the image, towards the bottom.
