Soar through the ‘Labyrinth of Night’ — a Martian canyon the size of Italy — in thrilling new satellite video

An exhilarating new video lets viewers fly by Mars‘ huge “Labyrinth of Evening,” a system of extraordinarily steep valleys in regards to the size of Italy.

The criss-crossing valleys in Noctis Labyrinthus, which is Latin for “Labyrinth of Evening,” are as much as 19 miles (30 kilometers) large — a bit longer than Manhattan — and 5 miles (6 km) deep. Within the video, launched by the European House Company (ESA), it’s also possible to spot craters, the wreckage from enormous landslides, and dunes from blowing sand.
