A Moon with a View

We've been enjoying the view from Cassini the past week looking in at Saturn's moon Phoebe. But what about the view from Phoebe? With the help of the sky simulation program Starry Night Pro, I created this view of Saturn from the surface of Phoebe. On this day, looking out into the Phoebean sky, Saturn is within 5 degrees of the Pleiades with Titan delightfully nestled nearby.
