Squooshed craters

Leave a comment

A piece of Mars: Impact craters are typically round circles, so when you see one that isn’t, it’s usually because something has changed its shape into something less perfectly round. These craters are squooshed on the lower right side, as ripples migrating towards the upper left invaded their southeastern (lower right) rims. (HiRISE ESP_028367_2085)
