Rembrant Basin

Rembrant Basin

If a crater is really large, it is called a basin instead. Rembrant Basin is on the left side of this false-color image. It is interesting to scientists partly because it is newer than most other large craters on Mercury. Amaral Crater is the bright one on the right.
