Nice shot of Rhea with the added bonus of the rings and 3 other moons. Way to go Cassini!

I've been looking at enlargements of Hyperion images and finally realize what it is that makes it look so different to me from other moons. It reminds me of what a close-up of a lump of slightly eroded coral looks like: the larger crater being the polyp cores. The other imagery is that of worm pumice stone: the larger craters like the surface bubbles. What all three might have in common is a lightness and porosity. The other oddity is that craters are of three distinct sizes: the obvious large craters; craters about a tenth the size and then very very small craters. And between all of these craters is a very soft surface void of any large craters like it was dusted over with snow. This would imply to me that Hyperion either has been subject to different conditions in space (was it a comet?)or its own unique geology, as Enceladus has its own unique geology.

Iapetus Monolith: For the answer, read my article in December 2008 edition of Sci American. (Article can be found here: http://www.ciclops.org/sci/papers.php , Look under 2008 for Porco, C. "The Restless World of Enceladus", etc..)

What's the current thinking on why Enceladus is only spewing ice particles from fissures near the south pole? What makes this area unique?

Regarding PIA12809, the new closeup of Rhea's main fractures, I detect some 'smudging' in the central fracture line showing the bright cliffs which to me look like what vapor jets would look like from a fissure as we have seen on Enceladus. Likely it is just a smudge in the image, but it did catch my attention as I panned down an enlarged view of this image. Comments?

6(!) Enceladus flybys for 2011, but next year will be quite boring in Titanian terms; just 5 Titan flybys :(

I find difficult that being a chunk of ice or a meteorite; if you look it closely it has a kind of tail and, assuming the object has left that tail, it does not seem as if it was coming from Enceladus. In my opinion it's just another cosmic ray hit.

I have to admit that I look forward to every image of Enceladus that is released from CASSINI. This one is a magnificent image of the geysers. I would question the meteorite statement though. To have a meteorite like that you would need an appreciable atmosphere which Enceladus does not possess. I would be more inclined to believe that this is a large chunk of ice being expelled from one of the stripes. Anyone agree? John.


Eyeing Erulus Crater

Lovely image & fantastic perspective too. One thing immediately obvious to me anyway, not just Erulus Crater is that, a similar view of Tehtys & Rhea would be saturated by small craters. Dione seen here is not. There are some small craters for sure, bet the terrain generally looks 'fresher' & more evolved. Erulus Crater itself has an interesting central mountain almost Y shaped, certainly obvious on other images taken from further away. More like two ridges in the centre of the crater rather than your typical central crater mountains, like those in the lunar crater Copernicus or the Mimas crater Herschel. Iapetus too shows a few craters with central ridges rather than mountains in the normal sense. Wonder if Dione has an exosphere like the one recently announced at Rhea?? Dione may still be geologically active on a small scale & certainly apart from Titan & Enceladus is the most evolved of Saturn's moons. Andrew Brown.
