Mars

As of 2007 seven putative cave entrances have been identified in satellite imagery of the planet Mars, all so far located on the flanks of Arsia Mons. [" [http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meetings/lpsc2007/pdf/1371.pdf Themis Observes Possible Cave Skylights on Mars] ." G. E. Cushing, T. N. Titus, J. J. Wynne, P. R. Christensen. Lunar and Planetary Science XXXVIII (2007)] They have been informally dubbed Dena, Chloë, Wendy, Annie, Abbey, Nikki, and Jeanne.

A more recent photograph of one of the features shows sunlight illuminating a side wall, suggesting that it may simply be a vertical pit rather than an entrance to a larger underground space.
