THEMIS: Yuty Crater ejecta

Yuty Crater (THEMIS_IOTD_20180326)THEMIS Image of the Day, March 26, 2018. Off the image to the right is Yuty Crater, located between Simud and Tiu Valles. The crater ejcta forms the large lobes along the right side of this VIS image. This type of ejecta was created by surface flow rather than air fall. It is thought that the near surface materials contained volatiles (like water) which mixed with the ejecta at the time of the impact.
