Cassini surveys a bright landscape coated by dark material on Iapetus. This image shows terrain in the transition region between the moon’s dark leading hemisphere and its bright trailing hemisphere. The view was acquired during Cassini's only close flyby of the two-toned Saturn moon.
The image was taken on 10 September 2007 with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera at a distance of approximately 5260 km from Iapetus. Image scale is 32 m per pixel.
