About this image

The major Martian dust storm of 2007 filled the sky with dust and produced conditions that prevented the THEMIS VIS camera from being able to image the surface. With no new images being acquired, we've dug into the archive to highlight some interesting areas on Mars. This week's region is Valles Marineris. Although not directly connected to Vallis Marineris, Hebes Chasma parallels the main canyon system. Hebes Chasma also contains complex layered deposits that have been modified by wind action.
