Saturn global view from Cassini, rings open
Cassini captured the 30 frames required to construct this mosaic on July 23, 2008, from a distance of about a million kilometers. About a year before Saturn's equinox, the ring shadows have shifted from where they were early in Cassini's mission to a fat arc a little above the equator.
