Caption: Xanthe Terra. Mars Express satellite image of Xanthe Terra, located just north of the Martian equator, showing steep cliffs. Here, there are ancient river valleys and deltas, similar to those on Earth, which have caused speculations that there may have been precipitation on early Mars. Data for this image were obtained by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on ESA's Mars Express.
