Kalidasa in Detail

This image, taken with the Narrow Angle Camera (NAC), gives us a close-up look at the crater Kalidasa, named for the renowned classical Sanskrit writer Kālidāsa. It is likely that after Kalidasa crater formed, a smaller impact created a second crater and destroyed part of Kalidasa's central peak. The low elevation areas in both craters were subsequently flooded with volcanic material, creating smooth plains on which light cratering has continued.
