This natural color mosaic was acquired by the Cassini spacecraft as it soared 39 degrees above the side of the rings. The view combines 45 images -- 15 separate sets of red, green and blue images--taken over the course of about two hours, as Cassini scanned across the entire main ring system. The images in this view were obtained at a distance of approximately 700,000. The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency.

Excellent work. I love the dark attitude with just the right amount of light in this to make everything stand out. Sue

Makes me quite jealous of that hunk of metal called Cassini floating around Saturn. Thanks for sharing.
