Cilix Crater Flyover

Cilix Crater Flyover

This animation showing a flyover of the region surrounding the 9-mile (15-kilometer) wide crater Cilix on Europa was created using stereo imaging data obtained by NASA's Galileo spacecraft. Cilix is one of the largest impact-related structures on Europa's relatively youthful surface. Cilix is a relatively young feature and dark ejecta can be seem mantling some of the the double ridges that cross this region. Cilix is approximately 2,500 feet (750 meters) deep.

Additional images and information about Cilix Crater are available from NASA's Planetary Photojournal.
