The most disctinctive feature visible in Voyager pictures of Tethys is a very large valley 50 to 100 km wide that extends nearly two-thirds of the way around the satellite. A huge crater is also visible at 30° N latitude and 130° W longitude. This crater is about 500 km in diameter (about half the diameter of Tethys).
