High-resolution global view of Iapetus’ trailing hemisphere

The dark material fills some fissures, appears on the flanks of large basins, and even falls in linear chains in the upper left of this image. Also noteworthy are two enormous, unnamed, overlapping impact basins at the lower left. The enlarged version is only half the full resolution.
