This image is a color composite of Dione taken by Voyager 1 on November 12, 1980. It was constructed from three separate images taken through orange, green and blue filters. It shows a low resolution view of the trailing hemisphere of Dione. The wispy white streaks are perhaps deposits of snow exuded from fractures in its crust.
