Craters Down Under
This monochrome image is from the southern hemisphere . The crater in the upper right corner, named Sūr Dās, has a central peak that catches the Sun and casts a long shadow to the east (right). Trails of secondary craters formed by the Sūr Dās impact event also are seen in the center of the image. Three small, well-preserved primary craters are visible in the middle; these formed on the ejecta of Sūr Dās and so are more recent.
