Rings rising from Saturn's shadow
Saturn casts a fuzzy shadow on the outer edge of its rings, which are lit from behind in this view. They have just rotated into sunlight.

Red, green, and blue-filter images were combined into a color image that was overlaid onto a higher-resolution clear-filter image. Original images were N1536743926_1, N1536744060_1, N1536744133_1, and N1536744150_1.
