A Multitude of Rays
Crater rays, which are often present around fresh craters, are numerous in this image. Both Bartok crater (crater with prominent central peak in the southeast) and Schoenberg crater (north of Bartok) have visible crater rays, as do a number of unnamed craters in this image. In the southwestern-most corner of this scene is a section of a ray from Basho crater, located approximately 36 degrees longitude away from Bartok crater (one tenth of the planet in distance).
