Mercury - The High-Incidence Campaign
Image credit: NASA/Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory/Carnegie Institution of Washington

Uploader comment: Acquiring high-incidence-angle images of Mercury's surface is a major mapping activity in MESSENGER's extended mission. The high-incidence campaign compliments the surface morphology base map of MESSENGER's primary mission, which was acquired under generally more moderate incidence angles.
