In this image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft, two large craters on Tethys, near the line where day fades to night, almost resemble two giant eyes observing Saturn. Tethys is significantly closer to the camera, while the planet is in the background.

NASA's Cassini orbiter shows Saturn's main rings, seen here on their 'lit' face, appear much darker than normal. That's because they tend to scatter light back toward its source -- in this case, the Sun.
