Layers of lava on Daedalia Planum (THEMIS_IOTD_20170301)THEMIS Image of the Day, March 1, 2017. This VIS image shows a portion of Daedalia Planum, an extensive volcanic plain comprised of flows from Arsia Mons. Different flow surface textures help delineate different flows. (This image was taken shortly after local sunrise, so the light is coming from the right. Use the small crater at center right to orient you.)
