  Vesta - Blocks of ejected material and small craters near a crater rim

Vesta - Blocks of ejected material and small craters near a crater rim

Uploader comment: The low sun elevation in this Dawn framing camera (FC) image of Vesta enhances small topographic details near the rim of the large crater, part of which is visible in the bottom left of the image. While most of this large crater is in shadow, the sunlit part of the image reveals boulders, which are house-sized or even larger.
