Intriguing: Atlas is saucer-shaped because it's most likely gathering particles from Saturns' rings: this process allows Atlas to grow over time (same thing happened probably to Iapetus: it has the same ridge along its equator). Ergo: Saturn rings probably act like an accretion disk :-)

i didn't know Dione had such high contrasts. for a moment, i thought i was looking at Iapetus. were the contrasts enhanced?

Correction: the cracks (if that's what they are) indicate illumination roughly from W. I still don't get it.

Confusing shadows. The craters indicate illumination from NNW; the cracks indicate illumination roughly from E. How is this possible? Two light sources?

OMG - look at that 'cross-hatched' pattern in the largest crater's floor! What caused it? Shrinkage in two directions? Stretching in two directions? Subsidence? Stunning image!

Wow - this image is breathtaking! What are those striations running through the craters? Fault lines? Folds? What are the approximate crater diameters?

it always takes me a while to figure out what the sun direction is when i see images of Iapetus. nice image here, but i would like to see the original brightness level in a side by side. my guess is it would also show the contrast in the lighter terrain to better effect. either way, this is still one of the most fascinating objects in out solar system. glad to see another image of it.

What I like about this image is that, on the limb in the 1 o'clock position, you can so clearly see the U-shaped profile of the crack. Groovy!
