Rocky Buttes

April 25, 2013
This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows rocky, dust-mantled buttes in a terrain similar to the Monument Valley of Utah/Arizona, located southwest of the Cerberus region. Boulders the size of large houses have tumbled down into the valleys between the buttes. The picture covers an area about 1.5 km (just under 1 mi) wide near 3.3°N, 212.4°W. Sunlight illuminates the scene from the left. MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-340, 24 April 2003
