  Vesta - Undulating surface and secondary crater chains

Vesta - Undulating surface and secondary crater chains
Image credit: NASA/ JPL-Caltech/ UCLA/ MPS/ DLR/ IDA

Uploader comment: This Dawn Framing Camera (FC) image of Vesta shows the characteristic undulating surface of Vesta’s southern hemisphere and many small craters, some of which make up secondary crater chains. Curvilinear grooves and ridges that run diagonally across the image characterize the undulating surface.
