Global view of Tethys from Cassini Taken by Cassini on October 14, 2009.

NASA / JPL / SSI / Gordan Ugarkovic

The view is a mosaic of four color images. Data were captured by Cassini on October 14, 2009 through infrared, green, and ultraviolet filters. Gordan Ugarkovic produced this "natural-ish" color version from this more extended palette. The large crater near the center of the disk is Penelope; to the west of Penelope there is a north-south line of the three craters Phemius, Polyphemus, and Ajax. Antinous is the large crater far to the south of these.

Original image data dated on or about October 14, 2009.
