Putting Things into Perspective
While high-resolution images of Mercury's surface provide invaluable information on Mercury's geological features and processes, also important is the weekly bird's-eye view or limb imaging. From this particular perspective, we can see a number of craters, including Debussy, Matabei, Sōtatsu, Rameau, Camões, Boccaccio, Holberg, and Spitteler.
