Now Debuting Balzac Crater
In the upper left hand corner, Balzac crater's bright central peak and wall slumps make it the highlight of this image. Also, one can easily see the difference between Balzac's ejecta blanket and the surrounding terrain through the appearance of crater chains and color differences. In addition, Low Reflectance Material (LRM) is visible in the lower right hand corner, and an interesting pit-floor crater is visible on the right.
