Cassini - Janus' Craters
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute

Uploader comment: Shadows darken parts of some of Janus' large craters as Cassini takes a close look during its flyby of this Saturnian moon on March 27, 2012. Janus (111 miles, or 179 kilometers across) periodically swaps orbits with Epimetheus.
