DEUTSCH: Das höchstaufgelöste Bild vom Tethys-Vorbeiflug vom 24. September 2005 zeigt eine Region unmittelbar westlich des Ithaca-Chasma-Grabensystems. Die Bildauflösung beträgt 110 m/pxl.|
ENGLISH: These two views are the closest Cassini images of Tethys’ icy surface that were taken during the September 24, 2005 flyby. The first image is a clear filter view and is the highest resolution image acquired by Cassini during the encounter. The two large craters at right show evidence that landslides have modifed their outlines and covered their floors with large quantities of debris. Linear depressions cutting across the terrain probably mark the surface expressions of faults or fractures.
This view is centered on terrain at approximately 4.2 degrees south latitude and 357 degrees west longitude on Tethys. The images have been rotated so that north on Tethys is up.
The view was obtained using the narrow angle camera at a distance of approximately 18,400 kilometers (11,400 miles) from Tethys and at a Sun-Tethys-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 17 degrees. Image scale in the clear filter view is 110 meters (360 feet) per pixel.
