Saturn global view from Cassini, rings open

Saturn global view from Cassini, rings open
Saturn global view from Cassini, rings open Cassini captured the 30 frames required to construct this mosaic on 23 July 2008, from a distance of about a million kilometers. About a year before Saturn's equinox, the ring shadows have shifted from where they were early in Cassini's mission to a fat arc a little above the equator.
