Reappearing Rhea

NASA's Cassini spacecraft examines the rough dark-light dichotomy of the terrain on Saturn's moon Iapetus. Lit terrain seen here is on the Saturn-facing side of Iapetus.

Iapetus' Puzzling Surface

Shadow Between the Shepherds

The Cassini spacecraft looks toward Rhea's cratered, icy landscape with the dark line of Saturn's ringplane and the planet's murky atmosphere as a background. Rhea is Saturn's second-largest moon, at 1,528 kilometers (949 miles) across.

Icy Profile

From on high, the Cassini spacecraft spies a group of three ring moons in their travels around Saturn. Janus is seen at top, while Pandora hugs the outer edge of the narrow F ring. More difficult to spot is Pan, which is a mere speck in this view.

Grandeur of the Rings

Saturn's most prominent feature, its dazzling ring system, takes center stage in this stunning natural color mosaic which reveals the color and diversity present in this wonder of the solar system.

Rings and Rhea

Saturn's shadow interrupts the planet's rings, leaving just thin slivers of the rings visible in this image, which shows a pair of the planet's small moons. Helene is in the center top of the image, Epimetheus is in the lower right.

Moons in Motion

NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured Saturn's moon Prometheus, orbiting near the streamer-channels it has created in the thin F ring, casts a shadow on the A ring in this image taken a little more than a week after the planet's August 2009 equinox.

Shadows Big and Small

The shadow of the moon Mimas strikes the F ring at a different angle than the angle at which it is cast on the A ring, illustrating differences in the vertical heights of the rings in this image taken as Saturn approaches its August 2009 equinox.

Crooked Shadow

Large regions of Saturn's night side are illuminated by the planet's gleaming rings. Except for a sliver of the sunlit crescent at left, this view shows a part of the planet lit almost entirely by ringshine.

Saturn by Ringshine

Cassini casts powerful eyes on our home planet, and captures Earth, a pale blue orb -- and a faint suggestion of our moon -- among the glories of the Saturn system.

Pale Blue Orb

A masterpiece of deep time and wrenching gravity, the tortured surface of Saturn's moon Enceladus and its fascinating ongoing geologic activity tell the story of the ancient and present struggles of one tiny world.

Saturn's moon Hyperion pops into view in this stereo anaglyph created from NASA's Cassini images; differing views are helpful in interpreting the moon's irregular shape. 3D glasses are necessary to view this image.

This image, which at first appears to show a serene scene, in fact 
reveals dramatic disturbances created in Saturn's A ring by its moon 
Daphnis as seen by NASA's Cassini spacecraft.

Daphnis' Disturbances

Long shadows stretch away from the towering edge waves created by the gravity of the moon Daphnis in this image taken by NASA's Cassini spacecraft a little more than a week before Saturn's August 2009 equinox.
