Tethys in enhanced color: south pole and southern Ithaca Chasma
Filed under pretty pictures, Tethys, Cassini, amateur image processing, global views, Saturn's moons
This portrait of Tethys is made of three Cassini images taken through infrared, green, and ultraviolet filters on May 10, 2008. It includes Tethys' south pole and the southern end of Ithaca Chasma, which is on the side of Tethys that faces Saturn. On the right side of the visible disk is the huge Telemus basin, but its topography is so subtle that it is difficult to see in this view.
