This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows the distal (far) end of a landslide deposit in Coprates Chasma, part of the vast Valles Marineris trough system. Large boulders, the size of buildings, occur on the landslide surface. This October 2004 picture is located near 15.3S, 54.6W, and covers an area approximately 3 km (1.9 mi) across. Sunlight illuminates the scene from the upper left.
