A Colored Kuiper
Kuiper, the bright crater in the top left quadrant of this color image, extends its bright rays across the entirety of the dark terrain beneath. Also visible are crater rays extending into the scene from the right side of the image, originating from another impact crater outside the field of view. The terrain is peppered with small fresh craters that appear bright against the dark background.
