Iapetus is a large moon of Saturn.It was discovered by Giovanni Domenico Cassini in 1671.. Iapetus is unusual: one side is very bright and the other side is very dark. This is because one half of the moon is covered in ice and the other side is coated in black, dusty carbon deposits.
The Iapetus suture runs where the Iapetus Ocean was before. In Great Britain the suture runs pretty much along the border between England and Scotland. On the east it runs through Lindisfarne, on the west through the Solway Firth. On the Isle of Man it is the Niarbyl Fault, which is an exposed section of the suture.
