This image shows the Nanedi Valles valley system, a steep-sided feature that may have been formed in part by free-flowing water. The HRSC obtained the image on 3 October 2004 during orbit 905 at a ground resolution of approximately 18 metres per pixel. The image has been rotated 90 degrees clockwise, so that north is to the right.
The scene shows the region of Nanedi Valles, a roughly 800-kilometre valley extending southwest-northeast and lying at approximately 6.0° North and 312° East in the region of Xanthe Terra, southwest of Chryse Planitia.
