  Vesta - Linear and curvilinear grooves

Vesta - Linear and curvilinear grooves
Image credit: NASA/ JPL-Caltech/ UCLA/ MPS/ DLR/ IDA

Uploader comment: March 29, 2012 This Dawn framing camera (FC) image of Vesta shows many linear and curvilinear grooves running roughly diagonally across the image. These grooves are much longer than they are wide: they are less than 1 kilometer (0.6 miles) in width and can be up to 10 kilometers long (6 miles).
