Full image of Saturn

November 4, 2016

From the Producer: A few technical details: the product consists of 21 frames across 7 footprints, filtered in groups of Red, Green, and Blue. The sequence was captured by Cassini over the course of 90-plus minutes on the morning of October 28th. Only three moons are visible as far as I'm able to ascertain: Epimetheus (just above the right ansa, near Saturn); and Atlas and Prometheus (at the tip of the left ansa). Pan is too faint to be detectable, and Janus must be just out of frame.
