Looking Into the Dark
This dramatic image, where north is to the right, shows a simple crater some 11 km in diameter, located within the 290-km-diameter Mendelssohn basin. Its sharp rim indicates that this crater is a comparatively young feature, though some parts of the crater wall have slumped onto the floor. The high resolution of this image shows distinctive textures along the crater walls.
