This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows dark wind streaks formed by removal of a thin veneer of bright dust covering small craters and lava flow surfacesnorthwest of Olympus Mons near 28.4N, 129.8W. Streak orientations indicate that the responsible winds blew from the east/southeast (right/lower right) toward the west/northwest (left/upper left). The image covers an area about 3 km (1.9 mi) wide. Sunlight illuminates thescene from the lower left.
