About this image

Today's VIS image shows part of Richardson Crater (top) and an unnamed crater below it. Large sand sheets cover the floor of both craters. Linear dune forms are visible on the top of each sand mound. The dunes in this image are different from crater dunes found further north, due to the amount of ice present most of the year. Richardson Crater is 89 km (55 miles) in diameter.
