Illustration for article titled A Rare Glimpse Of Rheas Warped Horizon

Saturn’s icy moon Rhea, which measures a mere 949 miles (1,527 km) across, features an irregularly shaped landscape battered by craters. This new image taken by the Cassini spacecraft shows the tortured surface in glorious detail.


This picture was captured by Cassini at a distance of 35,000 miles (56,000 km) on February 10, 2015.
