Elongated Collapse Pit in Ceraunius Fossae

Elongated Collapse Pit in Ceraunius Fossae

An Elongated Collapse Pit
Also visible in a Context Camera image, here we take a closer look at an elongated collapse pit in Ceraunius Fossae. This observation can help to tell whether or not there is a subterranean connection to this pit. As an added bonus, the much smaller depression to its south also appears to be another collapse pit. The Ceraunius Fossae are a set of fractures in the northern Tharsis region of Mars.
