|Robin Casady's CCD image of Parry.|
The rich fractured rilles were all in evidence. Particularly well defined and interesting were the points where rills sapped the walls into Parry and Bonpland, and even the northern extension of the rimae showed well. In the floor of Fra Mo, there are countless little craters that normally don't show up, but were clear tonight -- literally dozens, creating a sort of dimpled terrain like orange peel paint with glistening edges. With the drifty seeing, these would pop in and out like some kind of movie Dali might have made...
Illumination was perfect to show the "island" that defines Fram's northeast side, contributing to the somewhat mysterious "atmosphere" of the area.
