In the Shadow of Saturn's Rings - Universe Today
The newest photo released by NASA's Cassini spacecraft was taken on May 10, 2004 at a distance of only 27.2 million kilometres (16.9 million miles) using the spacecraft's narrow angle camera. The image shows the translucent C ring and the thin, outermost F ring, which cast a shadow across the clouded atmosphere. Cassini will arrive at Saturn in July, 2004 and begin a long term study of the ringed planet and its moons.
