New Rhea Image: Great White Splat

CICLOPS has released this 1 km/pixel view of Saturn's moon Rhea. This image was taken on April 14 and was previously highlighted here. This image show a relatively fresh crater on its surface. This view, while not the highest resolution view of this ray crater, has the best geometry for seeing both the surface albedo of the bright rays as well as the topography of the crater itself.
