"Chappy" crater, on the rim of Chaplygin Spectacular oblique view (65° slew angle) of a 1400-meter-diameter crater that formed on the rim of Chaplygin crater. Delicate lacy fingers of ejecta highlight the hummocky and steep topography around this young crater. The very brightest material was excavated from the lower reaches of the crater and was some of the last material to exit the rapidly forming crater. Learn more at the LROC website. NASA / GSFC / ASU
