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.

Although solid-looking in many images, NASA's Cassini orbiter shows that Saturn's rings are actually translucent. In this picture, we can glimpse the shadow of the rings on the planet through the A and C rings themselves, towards the lower right corner.
