Sneek Peek at a Peak
Degas crater is shown here in spectacular detail. This high-resolution mosaic is made up of five separate images. The floor of the crater contains cracks that formed as the melt sheet cooled and contracted. Downslope movement of material on the central peaks and walls has exposed fresh, bright material.
