Nectaris   Leave a comment

In Mare Nectaris, a bulls-eye.  32 x 32 degree selection from ldem_16.jp2 produced by the LOLA Science Team, then zoomed in to see the stepped circular depression near the center of Mare Nectaris.  ldem_128.jp2 shows the bulls-eye to be a smooth depression.  The stair-step is an artifact of low-resolution data.  For more information, read the story of the ghost of Nectaris:  http://moonscience.yolasite.com/ghost-crater.php
