Description:
Published in 1984 after several years of photographic analysis, this large format book presents maps of the six Saturnian moons which were investigated by the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft during their flyby missions of Saturn in 1980 and 1981, respectively. The maps, compiled with data gathered primarily by the two spacecraft, are presented to show the diversity that exists among six of the Saturnian moons.
