While NEAR Shoemaker orbits minor planet (433) Eros, the body appears too large for the camera's field of view. This spectacular view - looking down on the north polar region - therefore was mosaicked from six images taken February 29, 2000, from an altitude of about 200 kilometers. Features as small as 20 m are visible. The crater at the top has a diameter of more than 5 km. (Courtesy NASA/JHU/APL)
