  Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter - Breccia with Large Clasts

Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter - Breccia with Large Clasts
Image credit: NASA/JPL/University of Arizona

Uploader comment: In this beautiful image there appears to be a breccia layer, or a layer composed of rock fragments embedded in a finer material. This particular breccia is made up of fragments (or "clasts" as they are known to geologists) so large they can be seen by HiRISE.
