Janus global color view

Janus global color view
Janus global color view Cassini gazed at Janus (193 by 173 by 137 kilometers in diameter) from a distance of 96,000 kilometers on 26 July 2009 to capture this natural-color, global view; even the night side is faintly illuminated by light reflected from Saturn or the rings. Janus is the larger of a pair of moons that share an orbit around Saturn; its partner is Epimetheus. NASA / JPL-Caltech / SSI / color composite by Gordan Ugarkovic
