New Rhea Image: Polar View

CICLOPS has released this view of Rhea's south polar region. Unlike Enceladus' polar region, Rhea's is heavily cratered. The largest crater in this view is an 115x90 km wide impact crater toward the upper right. There are very few features in this scene that suggest an endogenic origin. An odd gash can be seen at left.

This image was taken on July 14 and has a resolution of 1 km/pixel.
