More so than any other moon. So many small craters that it looks dimpled like one.
Cool pics, thanks for sharing!
Thank you. And maybe it's because Rhea is made mostly of ice (~75%). Rhea is whiter than snow. At higher zoom levels, its surface is covered with
countless ice cliffs created by tectonic fracturing. It would make a stunning sight if we could be there on the surface.
