Feeling a bit rough? Check out this image!
The image above shows the continuous ejecta from an unnamed crater that is just outside of the frame to the north, located on the rim of Soseki crater. A pond of solidified impact melt appears smooth compared to the rough ejecta deposit. Impact melt is often found in substantial volumes outside of a crater rim when the parent crater forms on a slope, such as that of Soseki's rim, which allows melt to escape downslope.
