The Ariadnes Colles is a cluster of light-toned knobs, mesas, and hills in Terra Cimmeria near 35S, 188W. This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows an example of these landforms. They might be the eroded remnants of material deposited in an extremely ancient impact basin. The image covers an area about 3 km (1.9 mi) across. Sunlight illuminates the scene from the upper left.
