THEMIS: A peppering of small craters

Peppering of small craters (THEMIS_IOTD_20180404)THEMIS Image of the Day, April 4, 2018. This field of small dark craters is located in southern Elysium Planitia. The dark appearance against the surrounding lava flows suggests that the craters post-date the lava flows. The small “tails” near the craters indicate winds blowing toward the upper left of the image.
