This map of Phoebe is based upon pictures taken by Voyager 2 in 1981. As Voyager 2 did not get close to Phoebe, the best images were only about 11 pixels wide. From these images it was learned that Phoebe was a dark, 220 kilometers wide round object and with a period of rotation of about 9.4 hours. In 2004, if all goes well, the Cassini Orbiter will fly by Phoebe at a distance of about 50,000 kilometers before going into orbit around Saturn. The best images will have a resolution of about 350 meters per pixel. (Courtesy A. Tayfun Oner - adapted from a figure in an article by Simonelli and colleagues)
