Candor Chasma

Shadows cast by the high walls and high hills within Candor Chasma are visible in this image. The Odyssey spacecraft and THEMIS camera are passing over the surface of Mars at a local time near 5 in the afternoon. The sun is close to the western horizon and shadows are being created by tall topographic features.
