  Vesta - Secondary crater chains

Vesta - Secondary crater chains
Image credit: NASA/ JPL-Caltech/ UCLA/ MPS/ DLR/ IDA

Uploader comment: This Dawn Framing Camera (FC) image of Vesta shows many secondary crater chains on Vesta’s surface. The secondary crater chains are made up of small craters, which are less than 1 kilometer (0.6 mile) in diameter, usually slightly overlap one another and are collected into linear structures that stretch for up to 10 kilometers (6 miles) in this image.
