Vesta - Grooved surface
Image credit: NASA/ JPL-Caltech/ UCLA/ MPS/ DLR/ IDA

Uploader comment: This Dawn Framing Camera (FC) image of Vesta shows a part of the surface in Vesta’s northern hemisphere, which is scoured by many grooves with different orientations. These grooves are much longer than they are wide: some can be traced nearly all the way across the image but they are less than 1 kilometer (0.6 mile) wide.
