Great Zoom into Distributary Fan, Mars

This is a Great Zoom into the so-called Distributary Fan on Mars. It is located just northeast of Holden Crater. As seen from Martian orbit by the Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) flying on the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) spacecraft, this dramatic visualization shows us where liquid water likely flowed across the Martian surface sometime in the planet's past.
