The image above depicts an old, heavily cratered surface that is covered in rays from the nearby crater Fonteyn. Fonteyn is not visible in this view but is located approximately 100 miles to the east of the center of this image. This is a particularly striking image because of the visible contrast between the surface and the rays that overprint it.
