Here part of the eastern rim of Crater Huygens is shown. The crater rim is heavily eroded and shows a ‘dendritic’ pattern. This observation suggests surface water run-off.
The valley system is blanketed by dark material, which was either transported by a fluid running through the channels or by wind-driven (‘aeolian’) processes.
The image was taken during orbit 532 on 20 June 2004 with a ground resolution of approximately 70 metres per pixel. The displayed region is centred around longitude 61° East and latitude 14° South.
