Eros - NEAR

Eros showing Charlois Regio, Himeros, and Narcissus

This mosaic of near-Earth asteroid 433 Eros was made from six images taken at a distance of 204 km. Features as small as 20 meters across can be resolved in this image. The shaded depression at lower center is Charlois Regio, just right of it is the crater Himeros. The crater at top left is Narcissus, 2 km in diameter. Grooves can be seen radiating from Himeros towards Narcissus. The shallow Sun angle also allows 50 to 100 m size boulders to be visible. 433 Eros is about 33 x 13 x 13 km in size.
