Dione's Fractures
Date: 25 Aug 2009

The Cassini spacecraft looks down on the north pole of Dione and the fine fractures that cross its trailing hemisphere.

The north pole of Dione lies on the terminator between shadow and light, about halfway down the left side of the image. This view is centered on terrain at 66 degrees north latitude, 224 degrees west longitude. Lit terrain seen here is on the trailing hemisphere and anti-Saturn side of Dione (1,123 km, or 698 miles across).
