false-colr image of Saturn Silhouetted Clouds
This false-color mosaic of Saturn shows deep-level clouds silhouetted against Saturn's glowing interior. This mosaic shows the entire planet, including features like Saturn's ring shadows and the terminator, the boundary between day and night.

The blue-green color (lower right) is sunlight scattered off clouds high in Saturn's atmosphere and the red color (upper left) is the glow of thermal radiation from Saturn's warm interior.
