Color portrait of Rhea Images taken using clear, green, infrared and ultraviolet spectral filters were combined to create these enhanced color views, which offer an expanded range of the colors visible to human eyes in order to highlight subtle color differences across Rhea's surface. The moon's surface is fairly uniform in natural color. It was taken on February 9, 2015 and is centered at 21 degrees north latitude, 229 degrees west longitude. Resolution in this mosaic is 450 meters per pixel. The images were acquired at a distance that ranged from about 82,100 to 74,600 kilometers from Rhea.
