Caption: Rock debris on Mars. Satellite image showing a swath of a debris apron east of Hellas Basin, Mars. Debris aprons are often found surrounding isolated mountains in this area. Material flowed down off the top of the mountain and settled in an area around its base. The bottom of the image shows the base of the mountain, where material is sliding off and piling up into ridges. The top of the image shows the lobate edge of the apron, where it stopped flowing. Imaged by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
