Kurukulla Mons is a 59 km-wide volcano on the border of the Tilli-Hanum and Lowana Planitia
Caption: GULLIES ON THE WALL This false-color image shows a crater wall in Utopia Planitia
, with gully channels suggestive of water's activity.
The features at Hellas Planitia
are not the only of their kind ever found on Mars.
The planned landing area for Beagle 2 at the time of launch was approximately 170 x 100 kilometers (105 x 62 miles) within Isidis Planitia
On 2005 Nov 22 (Ls = 328[degrees]) a small bright dust cloud appeared in the Chryse Planitia

area of Mars.
The orbiter made its first fly-past over the probe's landing site at Isidis Planitia
near the Martian equator at about 12.
Scientists chose the landing site - a flat, low-lying basin called Isidis Planitia
- to minimise natural hazards.
Scientists believe that long ago the Isidis Planitia
region may have been covered with water.
The first video begins from the Sputnik Planitia
, an expanse of nitrogen ice plain.
THE BIG, NITROGEN-ICE-FILLED basin informally called Sputnik Planitia
has apparently caused Pluto's entire crust to shift over time.
The channels lie in Elysium Planitia
, an expanse of plains along the Martian equator and the youngest volcanic region on the planet.
