This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows light-toned, sedimentary rock outcrops in the Aureum Chaos region of Mars. On the brightest and steepest slope in this scene, dry talus shed from the outcrop has formed a series of dark fans along its base. These outcrops are located near 3.4S, 27.5W. The image covers an area approximately 3 km (1.9 mi) across and sunlight illuminates the scene from the upper left.
