Fractured terrain in Avernus Colles

Avernus Colles is a region of fractured terrain on Mars on the southeast margin of Elysium Planitia,[1] at 1.6°S, 171°E. It is fairly large, being 244 km (152 mi) in diameter. It was named in 1985 after a lake in Campania, Italy, which is believed by some to be an entrance to the underworld.
