The walls of the canyon are many kilometres high, larger than the Grand Canyon on Earth. This area is several hundred kilometres wide. Three large impact craters are seen. Eos Chasma is the eastern end of the enormous Valles Marineris (Mariner Valley) canyon system on the Martian equator. Mars is a cold, desert world. Image data from the High Resolution Stereo Camera.
