Twin Craters- Holberg & Spitteler
This NAC image features named craters Holberg and Spitteler. The craters are similar in diameters (about 61 km and 62 km respectively) and both have central peaks. The craters are nearly identical in structure but were formed by separate impacts. Holberg's more degraded appearance and higher density of superposed craters indicate that it is older than Spitteler. The slump in Holberg's wall closest to Spitteler may have been created during the Spitteler impact event.
