Carthage Linea on Dione - Universe Today
This photograph of a fractured and crater-scarred Dione was taken by Cassini on October 11, 2005, when the spacecraft was only 19,600 kilometers (12,200 miles) away from the moon. Most of the craters in this image have bright walls and dark deposits of material on their floors. Rock slides on the surface of Dione can reveal cleaner ice, while the darker materials accumulate in lower areas.
