Description:

Craters of all sizes litter the landscape on Dione. The larger craters in this view display prominent central peaks. The image looks down onto northern latitudes on Dione (1,126 kilometers, or 700 miles across). Lit terrain seen here is on the moon's anti-Saturn side. The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Oct. 12, 2006 at a distance of approximately 1 million kilometers (600,000 miles) from Dione and at a Sun-Dione-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 94 degrees. Image scale is 6 kilometers (4 miles) per pixel. The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington, D.C. The Cassini orbiter and its two onboard cameras were designed, developed and assembled at JPL. The imaging operations center is based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colo.
