Phlegra Montes is a range of gently curving mountains and ridges on Mars. They extend from the northeastern portion of the Elysium volcanic province to the northern lowlands. The High-Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express collected the data for these images on 1 June 2011 during orbit 9465. The image combines data from the nadir channel and one stereo channel to produce this 3D image. Stereoscopic glasses are required to see the 3D effect.
