New (Smaller) Magellan Image

NOTE: We recently updated this image to correct a problem which was reported by our helpful, concerned users.

Here is a smaller version of a Magellan image, reduced to only 512x512 pixels in order to permit folks to download it a bit more easily. It shows a sequence of "pancake" volcanic domes, each with a sharply defined border to a smooth plain and a summit pit. They appear to have been formed by the movement of a hot "plume" relative to the surface. A more complete caption will be posted later.
