Vesta - Dark-Rayed Crater and Spots
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA/MPS/DLR/IDA/ASU

Uploader comment: This image of a dark-rayed impact crater and several dark spots was obtained by NASA's Dawn spacecraft. The dark materials are located near an older, larger crater in the Sextilia quadrangle of Vesta's southern hemisphere.
