About this image

Today's image shows part of the interior of Milankovic Crater. The dunes in the center of the image are located in the pit at the summit of the crater peak. The small dunes near the bottom of the image are located on the floor of the crater. Many medium sized craters have central peaks, or peaks with summit pit. The peaks and pits all formed at the time the crater formed by impact.
