Coprates Catena

March 19, 2003
This picture of Coprates Catena (14.7°S, 55.8°W) was obtained in the early evening of January 1, 1998 by the Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC), shortly after the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft began its 80th orbit. The image covers a tiny fraction of the Valles Marineris canyons (that stretch over 4000 km, or 2500 miles, east-west) at very high resolution.
