Copernicus at sunrise

Copernicus at sunrise - Moon: West Region
Copernicus (93 km) is a classic crater, and one of the youngest on the Moon at ~800 million years, hence the lack of internal impacts and clean features. The terraced walls, which rise 900 m above the surrounding plain, show signs of prehistoric landslides. In addition to the three main central peaks, the crater floor is dotted with small hills, which may be volcanic. The crater is 3.7 km in depth and the central peaks rise 1.2 km in height above the crater floor. Resolution down to ~1 km, South is up.
