This is one of a set of Cassini images which are the best views yet of Hyperion, one of the large, low-density objects that orbit Saturn. Hyperion's irregular dimensions are 164 by 130 by 107 kilometres.
The closest image here was acquired from a distance of 168 000 kilometres. The image was taken using the narrow-angle camera and a spectral filter sensitive to ultraviolet wavelengths centred at 338 nanometres. Image scale is about 1 kilometre per pixel at best. The image has been enhanced to improve the visibility of surface features.
