What's in A Name
This image, taken with the Narrow Angle Camera (NAC), shows an unnamed complex crater in Mercury's southern hemisphere. The sharpness of the terraced walls and central peaks indicate that the crater is relatively young. Also visible is a secondary crater chain that crosses the northern half of the crater floor, most likely created by the ejecta of an impact outside of the field of view.
