Abedin in Color
Abedin crater is one of several large, fresh craters that formed within Mercury's northern volcanic plains deposit. The northern plains appear to be a thick deposit of relatively uniform composition, and Abedin also shows little color variation in its ejecta; portions of Abedin's impact melt are slightly more red in this view.
