Hazy View of Saturn - Universe Today
This moody image of Saturn was taken by Cassini on December 5, 2005. It was taken using a special combination of the spacecraft's spectral filters to reveal delicate haze in its upper atmosphere. A methane-sensitive filter makes the high altitude features stand out, while a polarizing filter makes the small haze particles bright. The small white dot at the right side of the rings is Saturn's moon Dione.
