New Tethys Image: Texture of Tethys

CICLOPS has released this processed view of Tethys taken on June 27. This view shows the impact basin, Odysseus, near the dawn terminator at the time this image was taken. Being right on the terminator allows for detailed analysis of the structure of the eastern portion of the basin. For example, one can see a number of massifs near the central peak region and look at the complex layered appearance of the eastern basin rim. This image was taken from a distance of 490,000 km and has a resolution of 3 km/pixel.
