Maunder Crater gullies and slides (THEMIS_IOTD_20190108)THEMIS Image of the Day, January 8, 2019. Today’s VIS image shows part of the eastern side of Maunder Crater. This crater has a unique form, with a large amount of fill on the eastern half of the crater floor, and a valley between the crater rim and the crater fill.

It is possible that a large landslide may have occurred in this region of the crater. In this image, multiple gullies are located on the west-facing side of the valley. Maunder Crater is located in Noachis Terra.
