Rhea was visited again by the Cassini spacecraft recently after spending years in a high inclination orbit around Saturn. This orbit prevented many closeups of Saturn’s moons as they orbit around the equatorial plane.

The two images were taken about an hour and a half apart as Cassini drew closer.

Cassini’s current orbit will allow for more closeups of other moons such as Titan and Enceladus as well.
