HiRISE: An Olympus Mons landslide

ESP_054599_2015An Olympus Mons landslide. Olympus Mons is too large for HiRISE to capture in one image, but we can get very detailed closeups of parts of it. Here, we see a slope streak, possibly caused by a boulder rolling downhill and exposing the darker material.
