Ganymede - Galileo

Impact crater in the Uruk Sulcus region of Jupiter's moon Ganymede

Galileo image of part of the Uruk Sulcus region on Jupiter's largest satellite, Ganymede. This image was taken during Galileo's first encounter with Ganymede, on 27 June 1996. At upper right is heavily-crater terrain, cut by ridges running from the upper left corner to lower right center. At the center of the less heavily cratered terrain at bottom is a large impact crater. North is up and the frame is 35 by 55 km, centered at 10 N, 168 W. (Galileo, P-47065)
