Small, rocky, no atmosphere - why would you expect them to be substantially different in appearance? On a similar note, what about Vesta? Excluding features resulting from the impact that created a structure nearly as big in diameter as Vesta itself, would you expect it to look much different?

Maybe mystified was a poor word choice; maybe interesting would be better. There are few, really large rocky bodies to compare and all of them have somewhat unique characteristics. As for Vesta, looking at Hubble images, I'm not at all sure what it would look like up close, but possibly somewhat similar.

Greetings,

Here is an updated version of my global map with several improvements, including the addition of ugordan's flyby 1 outbound mosiac.

That's the latest,

Thanks - and yes indeed - here is the latest with more south polar coverage (from orbital data) and improved image navigation:

Good eye John - would be nice to have a 3-D map though wink.gif

My latest version (linked in signature below) should have fewer of this type of artifact. It is also now 8K in size so finer details can be seen.

Not to leave the north pole out... this is a mosaic showing the region not yet seen in published images. The outer edge is 45 north. It takes a while to fill in the north because the images cover a lot less ground.

Phil, your mosaic may contain the answer to a question I was just asking myself this morning...have any images yet been released to the PDS that include the flow and scour features identified in Head et al.'s paper about the north polar lava flows?

Here's the diagram from their paper. It was released at very low resolution, and I asked if there were plans to release it at higher resolution, and they said not until a paper yet to be submitted to (I think) Icarus was published.

If you look closely you will see that area at about the 2:00 position, out near the edge of my map.

I think the images from that paper are not yet released, but the feature was seen with low resolution and higher sun during one of the flybys.

If you go to the MESSENGER Quickmap:

http://messenger-act.actgate.com/msgr_publ...t_quickmap.html

... and zoom in on 59 north, 110 east (NW of Caloris), you can see the area.

The latest MESSENGER picture of the day is a global (or almost so) mosaic, very nice. I expect it to be incorporated into Quickmap eventually, so it can be zoomed into more than the current release allows.

This is the north polar region (out to about 45 degrees) from that mosaic.
