Saturn With Cassini's Blue Filter - Universe Today
NASA's Cassini spacecraft took this latest picture of Saturn this week when it was 59.9 million kilometres away. The photo was taken using Cassini's BL1 broadband spectral filter. A full colour composite picture is built up by adding together images taken in the blue, red and green spectrums. Three of Saturn's moons can be seen in the image: Enceladus, Mimas, and Rhea. Cassini will be releasing new images once a week until it reaches Saturn in July 2004.
