Uploader comment: This image, taken with the Wide Angle Camera (WAC), shows the southern portion of Vivaldi basin and its continuous ejecta blanket. Named for the Italian Baroque composer Antonio Lucia Vivaldi, Vivaldi is a double-ring basin, a structure that can form when a large meteoroid impacts a rocky planet.
