Impact Central

CICLOPS has released a global resolution image of Rhea taken just after the Huygens landing a few weeks ago. This view shows wispy streaks, not unlike those seen on seen on Dione which turned out in images taken in December to be lanes of horst and grabens. At this illumination angle, it is difficult to tell whether the same is true for Rhea's wispy terrain. You may also note the linear bright streak at the bottom of the image which may be a fracture or a crater ray. I would go with the latter.
