This image, with north to the top, shows a well-preserved, unnamed complex crater in Mercury's northern hemisphere. The central peak and terraced walls characteristic of complex craters are clearly visible. The smooth floor of the crater is probably composed of solidified impact melt. The continuous ejecta blanket emanating from the crater has softened the texture of the surrounding terrain.
