Crater No. 1, whose interior has a large region in permanent darkness (a). In the weak scattered light, the framing cameras can make out bright deposits of ice (b). Crater No. 2 with its dark region is shown in Figures (c) to (e). The ice shown in (d) extends into the region with direct illumination (e).
