Cassini Sees ‘Flying-Saucer’ Moon Atlas Up Close

This raw, unprocessed image of Saturn’s moon, Atlas, was taken on April 12, 2017, by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft. The flyby had a close-approach distance of about 7,000 miles (11,000 kilometers).

The images are the closest ever taken of Atlas and will help to characterize its shape and geology. Atlas (19 miles, or 30 kilometers across) orbits Saturn just outside the A ring – the outermost of the planet’s bright, main rings.
