f.1.8

I have so much respect for Luna. Not only does she have unmatched talent in her vocals and dancing, but she’s also a composer, an actress, and she has a heart of gold. She inspires me to work hard and to be humble and kind. Based on past behaviour, I don’t think she understands how amazing she is and I wish more than anything that someone tells her this until she starts to believe it for herself!

Faint F Ring and Prometheus

Surface features are visible on Saturn’s moon Prometheus in this view from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft. Most of Cassini’s images of Prometheus are too distant to resolve individual craters, making views like this a rare treat.

Saturn’s narrow F ring, which makes a diagonal line beginning at top center, appears bright and bold in some Cassini views, but not here. Since the sun is nearly behind Cassini in this image, most of the light hitting the F ring is being scattered away from the camera, making it appear dim. Light-scattering behavior like this is typical of rings comprised of small particles, such as the F ring.
