HiPOD: Week of 24 January 2022
|An Eroded Crater near Lowell Crater|
This small crater is on the outskirts of a large eroded crater, next to Lowell Crater. The ground around the chosen region is very pockmarked, and has lots of bumps and ridges as well. The section of the crater wall shows signs of erosion much more significant than the other parts of the wall. This erosion could be from water or lava, but water seems much more likely. Lowell is to the east of this locale.
|A Channel North of Aonia Mons
This observation features an interesting cut in the landscape. Was it caused by erosion, a fault, or a low angle of incidence of a meteor strike? This channel, in Aonia Terra, is to the west of Lowell Crater. Our previous day’s HiPOD focused on a feature to the east of Lowell, so Aonia Terra has lots to offer!
