Mercury - Mariner 10

Computer photomosaic of the Tolstoj quadrangle of Mercury

Mariner 10 mosaic of the Tolstoj quadrangle, Mercury. Half of the crater Mozart (diameter 225 km) is visible as the black half-circle on the terminator at the left, just above the equator, which runs through the middle of the image. The 400 km diameter Tolstoj crater is barely visible at the center-bottom of the image. Budh planitia is in the upper right corner, and directly below it is Phidias crater, diameter 155 km. North is up. (Mariner 10, Atlas of Mercury, Fig. 8-A)
