In fact alot of the area have these lines.
Just something to look at if your bored haha
These are large features, right?
I think the first one you mention is seen at the following latitude and longitude coordinates (this format is preferred for locating as the user can
cut and paste directly into Google Earth's Mars view:
23 51' 15" N 69 13' 45" W
from about 85 mile altitude, just SW of Sacra Mensa-- the parallel canyons connected by a perpendicular one.
The second one, I believe is the roughly north to south canyon narrowing at the south end, viewed in its entirety from about 540 miles altitude,
centered at, roughly
16 14' N 71 54' W
You are right, interesting and fun and thanks for not twisting my brain with wild claims! I refer to them as "canyons," but I know very little
about the geology of Mars-- if someone said they are actually fault lines, I would be willing to agree.
