The Return of Xiao Zhao
The crater shown here is Xiao Zhao, a relatively young crater with a prominent system of bright rays. This image is extremely similar to one acquired previously, and that is by design. Certain features, like Xiao Zhao and locations with hollows, are being repeatedly imaged to look for any slight hints of change.
