Overexpossed Saturn and its rings near equinox
This global view of Saturn and its complete ring system was captured by Cassini on 20 February 2007, and is composed of 15 separate frames. It was assembled from the raw JPEG images by Ian Regan. The view is from the south, so the rings are fully lit by the Sun. It contains nearly all of Saturn's moons from Mimas inward. Clockwise from bottom center: Mimas, Epimetheus (near the left ansa), Pandora, Janus (near the top), and Prometheus (near the right ansa).
