Edge of Occator Crater

Edge of Occator Crater
Edge of Occator Crater Dawn observed the edge of Occator Crater from an altitude of 240 miles (385 kilometers) on January 26. The crater is 57 miles (92 kilometers) in diameter. Note the detail on the steep walls and the fractures both inside and outside the crater that generally are parallel to the rim. Look carefully to spot some very large boulders (as described here), especially near the top center and left. Full image and caption. NASA / JPL-Caltech / UCLA / MPS / DLR / IDA
