Eastern wall of Occator Crater

Eastern wall of Occator Crater
Eastern wall of Occator Crater Dawn photographed this scene along Occator Crater's eastern wall from an altitude of 30 miles (48 kilometers) on June 9. Sunlight is coming from near the top of the picture, so the many boulders visible here are well lit at the top and dark at the bottom. Craters are the opposite. The entire scene is 2.9 miles (4.6 kilometers) wide. We have seen many other sites in Occator Crater, most recently in JuneFull image and caption NASA / JPL-Caltech / UCLA / MPS / DLR / IDA
