New Rhea Image: Big Basin

CICLOPS has released this processed view of Saturn's moon Rhea. In this view, the large impact basin, Tirawa, can be seen to the upper right as well as a number of smaller craters. This view primarily shows the trailing side of Rhea.

This image has a resolution of 10 km/pixel but has been contrast enhanced and magnified 2x to bring out surface detail. The image was taken from a distance of 1.7 million kilometers.
