The sun is beginning to set over Juventae Chasma, a large canyon system located a little northeast of the Valles Marineris system. Bluffs inside this canyon record the region's history.

A thick layer of sediment forms a flat floor on the canyon. A series of deep scours resembling a wake have formed just downstream of a small ridge…
