Mercury - Hello Again, Hodgkins!

Uploader comment: Date acquired: March 13, 2012 Image Mission Elapsed Time (MET): 240165775 Image ID: 1513002 Instrument: Narrow Angle Camera (NAC) of the Mercury Dual Imaging System (MDIS) Center Latitude: 29.18 Center Longitude: 18.08 E Resolution: 34 meters/pixel Scale: Hodgkins crater is approximately 18 km (11 miles) in diameter Incidence Angle: 35.5 Emission Angle: 47.5 Phase Angle: 83.0 Of Interest: This image of the crater Hodgkins provides a great look at the beautiful interior and ejecta blanket of a fresh, rayed impact crater. From a wider perspective you can see the asymmetric ejecta distribution indicative of an impact that struck at a low angle to the surface; up close you can see that Hodgkins also formed partially atop an older crater and has a small rayed crater on its ejecta blanket.
