IAPETUS' MYSTERIOUS DARK SURFACE
In this extremely narrow angle field-of-view artist's rendering
Iapetus, with its notable dark surface, occupies the foreground with a dimly lit crescent
Saturn low in the sky. Iapetus' surface shows some strange wavy ice formations, some low
scoured hills, and mountains in the background. The Sun as well as three other satellites
are also visible. By David Seal (only available electronically).
