Sindbad (crater)

Sindbad (crater)

Sindbad is a crater in the northern hemisphere of Saturn's moon Enceladus. Sindbad was first seen in Voyager 2 images, though the southern rim has been seen by Cassini. It is located at 68.9° North Latitude, 211.4° West Longitude and is 23 kilometers across. A large, dome-like structure occupies the interior of the crater, suggesting the crater has undergone significant viscous relaxation.

Sindbad is named after a character from Arabian Nights. The stories of his seven voyages make up a number of tales in Arabian Nights.
