New Tethys Image: The Great Rift

This medium resolution view (~6 km/pixel) of Tethys taken last month shows a cresent Tethys with the southern end of Ithaca Chasma in full view. Ithaca Chasma is a long fracter that runs 3/4 of the way around this mid-sized icy moon. While lower resolution than a few other views taken of Tethys, this is one of the best views of this region of the moon.
