Crater with Streak

December 22, 2011
This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a crater in the Memnonia region of Mars, around which has formed a wind streak. The bright streak is in the lee of the crater--that is, it is on the crater's down-wind side. Thus, the winds responsible for the streak blew from the southeast (lower right). MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-1128, 20 June 2005
