Southern Iapetus
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute

Uploader comment: July 25, 2011 The Cassini spacecraft takes one of its last good looks at Iapetus, a Saturnian moon known for its yin-yang-like, bright-and-dark color pattern. This view looks toward the south pole of Iapetus (1,471 kilometers, or 914 miles across), and lit terrain seen here is in the southern latitudes of the trailing hemisphere.
