Super high-resolution global view of Dione, plus rings This super high-resolution view of Dione is a mosaic of 14 footprints, images taken through infrared, green, and ultraviolet filters processed to approximate the color that the human eye would see. In the background, Saturn's ring system is foreshortened to a thin double yellow line.
