en:wikipedia - Olympus Mons wrote: The central edifice stands 27 kilometres (88,600 feet) high over its base (about three times the height of Mount Everest above sea level and three times the height of Mauna Loa above its base); it reaches 25 km (15 miles) above the mean surface level of Mars, since it stands in a 2 km (1.2 mile)-deep depression. It is 540 km (335 miles) in width, flanked by steep cliffs, and has a caldera that is 85 km (53 miles) long, 60 km (37 miles) wide, and up to 3 km (1.8 miles) deep with six overlapping pit craters. Its outer edge is defined by an escarpment up to 6 km (4 miles) tall unique among the shield volcanoes of Mars.

The size of Olympus Mons is so great (roughly the size of the American state of Missouri) that a person standing on the surface of Mars would be unable to view the profile of the volcano even from a distance as the curvature of the planet would obscure such detail. The only way to view the mountain properly is from orbit. Similarly, if one were to stand on the highest point of its summit, the slope of the volcano would extend all the way to the horizon.

You obviously never paid attention during Latin class?

No, although I was refering to the feature in general, rather than specifically to 'mons'.

In my now (semi) enlightened, state, 'mons' appears to mean 'a protusion'.
