Nice Craters

This is the first shot ever from a craft orbiting Mercury. Click the headline to go to a site that serves up a quick visual size comparison for every planet in the solar system.
It looks like the Moon and it's only 1.4 times bigger. I do like the obvious high velocity impact crater that shows all the white bedrock. Maybe it's solid uranium.
