It really doesn't look that different. It is over the terminator in the view Peter posted, and the label is out in the smooth plain. Still, low light does create interesting effects. Here it is over the terminator but not by much.

That one is still alive, fortunately...and that is a great tribute from Messenger! Here are my imediate thoughts...Rimbaud, Thoreau, Pessoa, Torga, Poe, Coubain, Hesse, Kerouac, Ian Curtis, Whitman, Twain, Dante, kavafis, GOETHE!

Let me think about it... ;-)
And this just gave an idea...

Now I went looking for more...:

Kipling!
Freddie MERCURY!
Joplin!
Hendrix!
Wagner and all the classics...Bach on the lead... smile.gif

There so M-A-N-Y!

Ooops, right-o. How about Ziggy Stardust? (David Bowie's alter ego at the time). Does a past artistic persona count?

(Then we could also use Picasso's "Blue Period" for one of the spectrally fresher craters.) wink.gif

Nice image of Beagle Rupes! [Just saw that is also in the caption... *Tsk tsk*]

BTW, the Spider shall hence forth be known as "Parthenon Fossae". The crater on top of it shall now be known as Apollodorus.

That is all.

Nice pic!

"BTW, the Spider shall hence forth be known as "Parthenon Fossae"."

This is what everybody was saying at LPSC, but now it has morphed into Pantheon Fossae.

<thunk!> (Jaw hits floor) Incredible! Those HAVE to be more then mere impact features!!!

Looks at that big white splat to the NE of Kertesz as well. The subsurface seems to be much more regionally differentiated then originally thought.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

I think we'll end up concluding that the subsurface of one area of Mercury is lighter than some other area for similar reasons to why Syrtis Major is darker than the areas around it -- it's just where that particular stuff happened to bubble up.


I hope there's no-one here from the Sun newsdesk... wink.gif
