The aim of this project is to detect the rockfall on Mars which helps to learn about the surface of Mars and its formation and frequency of it. The trails of this rockfall can help to do the surface analysis for the scientist. Previously all these used happen just by doing manual mappings. The manual technique has its own drawbacks like time consumption and providing less information. Recently there are few research happened which showed good success for rockfall detection by data analysing. This research provides Deep learning approach for the same as there are studies in crater detection, rockfall detection on Moon. In this research three models have been chosen and compared like CNN, VGG16 and VGG19. CNN has given accuracy of 67% and VGG16 is at 94% and VGG19 is at 48%.
