Radar-bright Craters in Goethe
This image shows a small portion of the floor of Goethe basin. Both the dark crater near the bottom of the image and the crater extending out the left corner of the image are known to host radar-bright features. The radar-bright features may be due to water ice that is stable in the permanently shadowed interiors of these craters.
