About this image

This infrared image shows part of Zephyria Planum. This region is well named, Zephyria is one of the winged mares of Selene (the moon goddess of Greek mythology), and this region has been subject to intense wind activity. Each level of surface in this image records a different wind direction. Note the small double-circle opening in the thumbnail which reveals a surface etched in a NW/SE direction beneath one etched by the wind in a NNW/SSE direction.
