  Big Crater Down South
Big Crater Down South
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute

Uploader comment: A large crater can be seen in the southern hemisphere of Saturn's two-tone moon Iapetus. Lit terrain seen here is on the trailing hemisphere of Iapetus (914 miles, or 1,471 kilometers across), a moon whose leading hemisphere is extremely dark and whose trailing hemisphere is as white as snow.
