This is third RADAR SAR image released today. This area appears similar to the region seen in SAR coverage in October. While the title of the release is "Dark Terrain", in ISS images, this area seems to be of intermediate brightness, neither dark, like the region west of Xanadu and the "H" (north and east of Xanadu), not bright like Xanadu and the region surrounding "Circus Maximus". This image shows a number of hillocks and ridges surrounded by RADAR dark terrain. The subtle bright features maybe cryovolcanic flows, similar to those seen in October.
