Odysseus the Great

July 23, 2008

Tethys sports an enormous impact basin, Odysseus. The impact basin is 450-kilometers (280-miles) wide and contains a central complex of mountains.

Lit terrain seen here is on leading hemisphere of Tethys (1,062 kilometers, 660 miles across). North is up.

The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on May 31, 2008. The view was obtained at a distance of approximately 717,000 kilometers (446,000 miles) from Tethys and at a Sun-Tethys-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 59 degrees. Image scale is 4 kilometers (3 miles) per pixel.
