Mosaic of Vesta's equatorial region
The image shows a mosaic of Vesta’s equatorial region (30°N to 30°S). The mosaic is composed of observations taken through the panchromatic filter and obtained on 24 July 2011 as part of a rotation characterisation sequence (RC3); it has a scale of about 400 metres per pixel and shows impact craters of different sizes, grooves parallel to the equator and dark features within some of the craters. The mosaic is in equidistant map projection, based on a digital terrain model from RC3a/OPNAV18/RC2 and Lambertian photometrically corrected.
