Crescent Dione in false color
Filed under Dione, pretty pictures, Cassini, amateur image processing, global views, Saturn's moons
Seen at a relatively high phase of 118 degrees, Dione's wisps and craters are dramatically outlined by patterns of light and shadow. This color composite uses images taken through ultraviolet, green, and infrared wavelengths, which exaggerates the colors on Dione's surface.
