Rhea in natural color, featuring Inktomi crater
Rhea is the second largest of Saturn's moons, an icy body 1,538 kilometers in diameter. Cassini took the frames from which this color composite was made on February 24, 2006. The "splat" of a fresh impact crater is now named Inktomi. The large basin near the upper left of the disk is Tirawa.
