Quirky Crater

The impact that created this crater on Mercury exposed a variety of subsurface materials—hence the color variations in this image taken by NASA’s MESSENGER orbiter and released October 4. Earlier this year the colorful, quirky crater was named in honor of Theodore Seuss Geisel, known to fans of colorful, quirky picture books as Dr. Seuss.
