SUMMARY: NASA's Cassini spacecraft took this natural colour image of Saturn's moon Rhea. It seems to display bright, wispy terrain, which looks like it's just been painted onto its surface - this is similar to another of Saturn's moons, Dione. Images were taken using Cassini's red, blue and green spectral filters, and then combined to create the natural colour version. They were taken on January 16, 2005, when Cassini was 496,500 kilometers (308,600 miles) from Rhea.
