Crater Rim Overtopped by Flow

Overtopped by Flow
This image shows that a flow (perhaps lava) over-topped the raised crater rim and poured into it at this location. If it was lava, high resolution can help us to see fine details in the shape of the flow so we can discern lava properties at the time of the emplacement. It might be challenging to decipher, but it’s worth a look.
