Vesta - Double crater
Image credit: NASA/ JPL-Caltech/ UCLA/ MPS/ DLR/ IDA

Uploader comment: A double crater, called a crater doublet, is seen in the bottom right part of this framing camera (FC) image of Vesta. This crater doublet was likely formed by the simultaneous impact of two fragments of a split projectile, or of two mutually orbiting impactors.
