Uploader comment: This image, taken with the Wide Angle Camera (WAC), shows Praxiteles crater. Named for the renowned Athenian sculptor Praxiteles of the 4th century B.C., this crater displays an inner peak ring and irregularly-shaped depressions surrounded by high-reflectance material with a color signature different from the surrounding material.
