Pavonis Mons

Pavonis Mons

Pavonis Mons is the smallest of the three large shield volcanos that make up the Tharsis Montes in the western hemisphere of Mars. It is 45,934 feet (14,000 m.) high.

Just like its sister, Arsia Mons , there is evidence of glaciers on Pavonis. Pavonis Mons means "Peacock Mountain" in Latin and was given this name in 1973.
