These images are not to scale, but show some of the fascinating landscapes of the moons seen by the Cassini orbiter. Identify the moons. The streaks on Rhea's surface are probably lines of ice cliffs. Mimas was nearly destroyed by the impact that left its huge crater. Titan is always shrouded by clouds. Hyperion is not solid, but a mass of loosely collected rubble, so its craters look odd. Pandora is tiny, but its gravity helps shape the F Ring. Phoebe is probably a captured asteroid: it is very small, and it orbits backwards and very far from the planet.
