33 Cassini views of Iapetus, March and April 2015
33 Cassini views of Iapetus, March and April 2015 Cassini took the images used to make these color composites through clear, ultraviolet, green, and infrared filters between 26 March and 1 April 2015. They show Iapetus' north pole above its leading hemisphere, which is coated with dark material that likely originated on Phoebe. The images are enlarged 2x from their original resolution.
