Stock Photo Description:Photo of craters and a Landslide on Saturn's Moon, Lapetus. This is a photo by NASA Public Domain showing craters and a Landslide on Saturn's Moon, Lapetus.
The Cassini spacecraft captured this spectacular view of a landslide on Saturn's moon, Iapetus.
Landslides are common geological phenomena on many planetary bodies, including Earth and Mars. The appearance of this landslide on an icy satellite with low-brightness cratered terrain is reminiscent of landslide features that were observed during NASA's Galileo mission on Jupiter's moon Callisto.
