  Vesta - Layered Young Crater

Vesta - Layered Young Crater
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA/MPS/DLR/IDA

Uploader comment: This image from NASA's Dawn spacecraft shows a young crater on Vesta that is 9 miles (15 kilometers) in diameter. Layering is visible in the crater walls, as are large boulders that were thrown out in the material ejected from the impact.
