Vesta - Subdued and fresh craters
Image credit: NASA /JPL-Caltech/ UCLA/ MPS/ DLR/ IDA

Uploader comment: This Dawn Framing Camera (FC) image of Vesta shows a part of a large subdued crater in the top left of the image. A lot of this crater is in shadow but a part of its rather degraded and rounded rim can be distinguished because of the shadow that it casts inside of the crater.
