Rhea: Cassini's Holiday Spectacle

Cassini gives the world a trove of Rhea imagery for the holidays, including a special three-dimensional scene of the fractured moon. (Image advisory can be found here.)

Dec 21, 2010: Rhea's Fractured Terrain in 3-D - Wispy fractures cut through cratered terrain on Saturn's moon Rhea in this high resolution, 3-D image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft.
Dec 21, 2010: False-Color Rhea - Hemispheric color differences on Saturn's moon Rhea are apparent in this false-color view from NASA's Cassini spacecraft.
Dec 21, 2010: Rhea's Western Wisps - Icy fractures on Saturn's moon Rhea reflect sunlight brightly in this high-resolution mosaic created from images captured by NASA's Cassini spacecraft during its March 2, 2010, flyby.
Dec 21, 2010: Map of Rhea - November 2009 - This global digital map of Saturn's moon Rhea was created using data obtained by NASA's Cassini and Voyager spacecraft.
Dec 21, 2010: Rhea Polar Maps - November 2009 - The northern and southern hemispheres of Saturn's moon Rhea are seen in these polar stereographic maps, mosaicked from the best-available images obtained by NASA's Cassini and Voyager spacecraft.
Dec 21, 2010: The Rhea Atlas - Presented here is a complete set of cartographic map sheets from a high-resolution atlas of Saturn's moon Rhea, made from data obtained by the imaging cameras on NASA's Cassini spacecraft.
