Delightful de Graft
This exquisite image shows de Graft, a complex crater that contains many hollows on its floor and peak. It is not yet known exactly how hollows form, but the MESSENGER team is actively working to understand this unique phenomenon. Pristine hollows in young craters like de Graft may be still forming to this day. It seems that this crater is as interesting as its namesake, Joe de Graft.
