Olympus Mons
On Mars, a massive dust storm sweeps down the flanks of Olympus Mons. Olympus Mons is the tallest known mountain in our solar system. It is a shield volcano , the result of highly fluid lava flowing out of volcanic vents over a long period of time, and is much wider than it is tall. Olympus Mons stands 27km above the surface of Mars.
