You need to upgrade your Flash Player The theme of this blog is not only and obviously space, but in particular “terrestrial worlds”, places that tend to have surfaces on which one could walk or at least attach oneself to. These places sometimes also have other earth-like familiar features such as atmospheres, weather, volcanos, geysers and perhaps, we are finding, even exotic oceans, rivers or lakes that are not necessarily made of familiar materials we are used to here at home. The second theme is imagery. Occasionally I do some retouching of images when needed if an image is incomplete or sometimes “dirty” or noisy. I will attempt to correct image shortcomings based upon other images or well-accepted presumed attributes. When this is done, notes will be offered as to what was added, why and sometimes how it was done. This way no one should ever wonder if something they are looking at is real or photoshop.

Wallpaper: Rhea and Saturn

Wallpaper: Rhea and Saturn
The moon Rhea is pictured drifting across Saturn’s disc. Rhea is one of 3 medium sized moons (including Tethys and Dione) which are largely composed of ice with small amounts of rock and whose features consist mostly of craters. Rhea also displays the “wispy” lines that appear on Dione, so it is assumed that these are also ice cliffs as determined to be on Dione.

IMAGE NOTE: This image was not altered other than extending Saturn’s rings to fill the page on the right side. The original image was in square format so the subtle ring outlines were more cropped than seen here.
