New Tethys Image: Icy Scars

CICLOPS has released this processed view of Tethys taken in late May. In this view you can see Ithaca Chasma along the terminator at left. Just to the southeast of Ithaca (north is up), you can see a very old, degraded impact basin which has since been modified by later impact events. Throughout this view of Tethys, you can see numerous impact scars, including Penelope near the bright limb at the 3 o'clock position.

This image has a resolution of 6 km/pixel (magnified 2x for feature visibility) and was taken on May 20.
