Streaked craters of Mimas

Earth’s moon is just one of the satellites in our solar system to take a beating. Mimas, one of Saturn’s moons, is shown here in this false-color image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft. NASA points out how the colors vary on the moon’s surface, including the bluish terrain on the right and the greenish terrain elsewhere.
