Thermally Anomalous Crater on Hrad Vallis Flow

Thermally Anomalous Crater on Hrad Vallis Flow
This observation was taken as part of a continuing investigation of the thermally anomalous craters on the mudflow that originated from Hrad Vallis. Hrad is an ancient outflow channel near Elysium Mons, and may have supplied water that interacted with volcanic material to create the channel and mudflow.
