Go Back

Publicia crater Publicia crater (center-right) is located in Vesta’s northern hemisphere. The crater's base features mounds of material that probably tumbled down the crater’s sides. Although the crater looks fresher than most of its neighbors, the material in its base has its own small impact craters, suggesting Publicia has been around for a reasonably long time.
