Following on from Monday's Featured Image, we revisit Stieglitz crater, this time focusing on its ejecta blanket. In this image, with north to the right, a Sun low on the horizon enhances the appearance of the secondary impacts that form linear chains that radiate from the larger Stieglitz impact. Smaller secondaries can be seen in the middle of the image, apparent as very small craters with irregular distributions.
