Mars Photo of the Day - Nov 15 2011

Today's Image of Mars is of a proposed future landing site in Ladon Valles on Mars. Ladon Valles is a 278km long outflow channel that connects with Ares Valles. It is part of a larger system that heads to Argyre Basin, which many scientists believe once contained a large ocean of water. 

This image was published by HiRISE on November 1 2011, but is not currently captioned.
