Uploader comment: Date acquired: March 08, 2012 Image Mission Elapsed Time (MET): 239703718 Image ID: 1490467 Instrument: Narrow Angle Camera (NAC) of the Mercury Dual Imaging System (MDIS) Center Latitude: 1.60° Center Longitude: 356.5° E Resolution: 165 meters/pixel Scale: Scene is approximately 160 km (100 miles) from top to bottom Incidence Angle: 4.2° Emission Angle: 82.3° Phase Angle: 78.0° Of Interest: This high-resolution image of Mercury's limb is part of a new type of observation that MESSENGER will use throughout the extended mission: the NAC ride-along imaging campaign. When data volume is available and MDIS is not acquiring images for its other campaigns, high-resolution NAC images are obtained of the surface.
