Saturn, Titan, and Prometheus
Cassini captured this view of Saturn with Titan and Prometheus with its wide-angle camera on January 5, 2011 at about 08:00 UTC. Titan is on the far side of Saturn from Cassini, more than 1,800,000 kilometers away; Prometheus is much closer, only about 500,000 kilometers away. The different distances exaggerate Prometheus' size with respect to Titan. In fact, Titan is roughly 30 times Prometheus' diameter.
