Hermite A   Leave a comment

Hermite A crater.  87.8 degrees North, 47.1 degrees West, 20 km in diameter.

A close-up of the walls and floor of Hermite A derived from 20 meter-per-pixel data.  The orientation is about 45 degrees counter-clockwise from the image at the top.  At this scale, the stitching between individual passes of the LRO are prominent.  The spiked peaks are sensor artifacts.  (I’d like to think they are patches of glare ice.)

Down in the crater.  10 meter per pixel data.  Click for full-size.  The spiked peaks are sensor artifacts.

5 meter data, 8.5km in width.  Most of the texture is the stitching of the seams in the data.  Please, pay no attention to the alien artifact or it’s pup to the left. Click for full-size.
