This global map of Saturn's moon Mimas was created using images taken during Cassini spacecraft flybys, with Voyager images filling in the gaps in Cassini's coverage.
Map of Mimas - June 2012 -- Unannotated
The Cassini spacecraft looks past Saturn's main rings to spy the tiny moon Atlas, which orbits between the main rings and the thin F ring.
Atlas in the Distance
The Cassini spacecraft monitors Titan's developing south polar vortex, which is a mass of swirling gas around the pole in the atmosphere of the moon.
Southern Swirl
Saturn's moon Mimas peeps out from behind the larger moon Dione in this view from the Cassini spacecraft.
Peeping Mimas
Saturn's moon Enceladus is partially eclipsed by the planet in this Cassini spacecraft view which also features the moon Titan in the distance.
Eclipsing a Moon
False-color images from NASA's Cassini spacecraft show the development of a hood of high-altitude haze ­- which appears orange in this image -- forming over the south pole of Saturn's moon Titan. These images were obtained on May 22 and June 7, 2012 by the visual and infrared mapping spectrometer in infrared wavelengths.
Winter's Coming
This true color image captured by NASA'S Cassini spacecraft before a distant flyby of Saturn's moon Titan on June 27, 2012, shows a south polar vortex, or a swirling mass of gas around the pole  in the atmosphere of the moon.
