This view looks toward the northern, sunlit side of the rings from just above the ringplane.
At the far right, and obscuring Saturn itself, is the planet's second largest moon, Rhea, which spans 949 miles. Rhea is closest to Cassini in this composition, at a distance of 683,508 miles.
The nearly 248.5-mile-wide Mimas lies just beyond, and seemingly levitates just above Saturn's innermost rings. Brightly reflective Enceladus appears above the center of the image and lies beyond the rings, 1.1 million miles from Cassini.
To the lower left, tiny Pandora, just 50 miles across, appears skewered by Saturn's outer rings - in fact, it orbits between the planet's A and F rings. Last but not least, the irregularly shaped Janus lies at the far left of the image, several shadowy surface markings corresponding to large impact craters.
The Cassini–Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, ESA and ASI, the Italian space agency. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory manages the mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate.
