  Mercury - Rays the Roof

Mercury - Rays the Roof

Uploader comment: This image, taken with the Wide Angle Camera (WAC), shows a bright rayed crater in Mercury's southern hemisphere. The rays, created when target material was ejected out onto the surface during the impact that formed the crater, will gradually fade over time due to the effects of Mercury's harsh space environment.
