About this image

Today's VIS image shows part of the interior of Candor Chasma. At the bottom of the frame is a bright feature formed by layers of material deposited in the canyon after it formed. Additional darker material is likely sand blown into the canyon and eroded from rocks within the chasma. Candor Chasma is just one of the canyons that make up Valles Marineris.
