This image of Dione is a mosaic of several of the highest resolution images taken by the Voyager spacecraft. It shows a heavily cratered surface. The large crater named Aeneas, towards the top of this image, is 150 kilometers (90 miles) in diameter. Another large crater named Dido, towards the bottom, is 125 kilometers (75 miles) in diameter. Bright streaks are found on the opposite side of Dione. A rimmed and flat floored fracture near the terminator is named Latium Chasma. It is greater than 300 kilometers (180 miles) long, less than 1 kilometer (.6 miles) deep and 8 to 12 kilometers (4.8 to 7.2 miles) wide.
