This image, captured with the Narrow Angle Camera (NAC), displays a beautiful unnamed crater in Mercury's southern hemisphere. The crater's well-preserved terraced walls and textured ejecta blanket indicate that the crater is relatively young. On the crater's southern floor and wall, we can see high-reflectance patches, known as hollows.
