Perspective view of Mars: Outflow channels, Viking 1 and Pathfinder landing sites A perspective view on Mars employing Viking color data looks over Chryse Planitia, a smooth region of the planet into which many of Mars' outflow channels emptied. Two landers touched down in this part of the globe: Viking 1 (which landed near the mouth of Kasei Valles, near the terminator at left), and Pathfinder (which landed near the mouths of Tiu and Ares Valles, which flowed around the streamlined islands on the right).
