Wide view of Saturn's F ring
As Cassini retreated from its close encounter with Saturn during orbit insertion on July 1, 2004, it turned back to look at a sunlit view of Saturn's rings. Here, the wispy F ring curls across the frame. The tiny moon Prometheus is dimly visible in the upper left. This image is a wide-angle context for a narrow-angle view captured at the same time.

Original image data dated on or about July 1, 2004
