Titan, Rhea, and Mimas
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.

Viewing geometry:
Distance to Titan: 4.35 million km
Distance to Rhea: 2.63 million km
Distance to Mimas: 3.03 million km
Phase angle: 142°
