Dione


Rather dazzling even in black and white, don’t you think? An older surface than Enceladus (of the south pole ice geysers) but still not as peppered with craters as Rhea. Questions: Why are the central peaks of those craters so high–they seem higer than the crater rims? Some of those craters look a bit deformed.

If you want the false color view, check the Cassini link on the side bar.
