Caption: Mercury hemispheres, MESSENGER images. Monochrome (left) and colour-filtered (right) images of a hemisphere of Mercury. North is at top and the hemispheres are centred at longitude 285 degrees West. The dark crater at upper left is the Rachmaninoff crater. These paired orthographic projections, each consisting of thousands of images, were published in 2013, updating earlier work from 2011. They form part of NASA's Planetary Data System. Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun, is 4880 kilometres across. The MESSENGER spacecraft entered orbit around Mercury in March 2011. Image data from the Mercury Dual Imaging System (MDIS).
