Dione Rev 137 Raw Preview

These raw, unprocessed images of Saturn's moon Dione were taken on Sept. 3, 2010. These images include the best views of Dione's north pole region Cassini has yet captured. The new images also show another view of the long, bright canyon ice walls, which scientists working with NASA's Voyager spacecraft called "wispy terrain" in the early 1980s. These ice walls thread along the surface of the moon's trailing hemisphere.

These are beautiful! Taken on September 4, 2010 and received on Earth September 4, 2010 and seen by me on September 4, 2010. I can remember when I would have had to wait a couple of months to see only one or two of these in the magazines of the time.
