HiRISE: Flow on the rim of Tooting Crater

ESP_016412_2030This oblique view shows a small part of the near-rim ejecta from Tooting Crater. The flow extending from upper left to lower right looks much like a typical lava flow, but doesn’t emanate from a volcanic vent.

Instead, this must be either melted rock from the impact event, or a wet debris flow from melting of ice. The surface is dusty so color variations are minor. [More at link]
