Cassini-Huygens
Mimas Temps
03/30/10

 

This figure illustrates the unexpected and bizarre pattern of daytime temperatures found on Saturn's small inner moon Mimas. The upper left image shows the expected distribution of temperatures. The white sun symbol shows the point where the sun is directly overhead, which is at midday close to the equator. The upper right image shows the completely different pattern that Cassini actually saw. Credit: Images courtesy NASA/JPL/GSFC/SwRI/SSI
