The Shortest of Shadows
The limb of Saturn appears bright as the Cassini spacecraft peers through several of the planet's rings.
Saturn Bright Through Rings
Saturn's rings occupy the space between two of the planet's moons in this image which shows the highly reflective moon Enceladus in the background and the smaller moon Janus in the fore.
The Space Between
Saturn's moon Pandora shares the stage with ghostly B ring spokes in this Cassini spacecraft scene.
With Ghostly Spokes
The Cassini spacecraft spies two types of waves in Saturn's A ring: a spiral density wave on the left of the image and a more pronounced spiral bending wave near the middle.
Wave Classification
Bright spokes grace the B ring in this image which also includes the shadow of the moon Mimas and was taken about a month after Saturn's August 2009 equinox.
