Dione

Dione is a small icy moon of Saturn. Much like Rhea or Tethys, it features a two-tone colouration between its leading and trailing hemisphere, the result of the moons scooping up material from Saturn's extensive E-Ring.

Dione is easily recognisable from its criss-crossed feature in its darker hemisphere nicknamed "wispy terrain", now known to be caused by enormous tectonic fractures creating bright ice cliffs many hundred meters high.
