This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows wind streaks and a thick mantling of dust in the summit region of the martian volcano, Pavonis Mons. The surface texture gives the impression that the MOC image is blurry, but several very small, sharp impact craters reveal that the picture is not blurry.
