Mercury - Darkness Falls
Image credit: NASA/Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory/Carnegie Institution of Washington

Uploader comment: This dramatic image, taken when the sun was a mere ten degrees above the horizon, showcases a small, simple crater atop the rim of a larger, 35 km-diameter unnamed complex crater. The smaller crater's rim shows little sign of erosion or collapse, marking it as a relatively young feature.
