The two large craters on the right of this image are overprinted with smaller, more recent craters in this Cassini view of Saturn's moon Rhea.
Rhea, at 1528 kilometers, or 949 miles, across, is Saturn's second largest moon. This view is centered on terrain at 13 degrees south latitude, 132 degrees west longitude.
The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Oct. 17, 2010. The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 44,000 kilometers (27,000 miles) from Rhea. Image scale is 259 meters (849 feet) per pixel.
The Cassini Solstice Mission is a joint United States and European endeavor. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington, D.C. The Cassini orbiter was designed, developed and assembled at JPL. The imaging team consists of scientists from the US, England, France, and Germany. The imaging operations center and team lead (Dr. C. Porco) are based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colo.
