Majestic Saturn Moons from Cassini

Saturn Moons

On September 17, 2011, the Cassini orbiter snapped a photograph of Saturn and four of its moons – Dione (located above the rings), Titan (looming in the background), Pandora (to the right of the rings), and Pan. You’ll have to strain your eyes to look at Pan which is a little orb traveling within the Encke Gap inside the rings of Saturn.  Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute
