A New Side of Mercury

Amazing images of Mercury from the second flyby of Messenger. This is the first image taken by a spacecraft from this side of the planet. More images are streaming in from Mercury as we speak (or write :-)). Below you see a set of images of Mercury as the spacecraft approaches the planet. Plenty of sharp detailed images have been taken too.
