Cassini captured this Titan, Rhea (lower left) and Mimas mutual event on March 25, 2015 with its narrow-angle camera. A very faint ring (G ring?) that is almost undetectable unless the photo is viewed in darkness runs horizontally between Rhea's upper limb and Mimas' disk. Several faint stars are also visible.
