Back to Saturn

Meanwhile, at Saturn, Cassini is in the middle of her second orbit of the ringed planet. The images released by the Cassini team this past week or so have been incredible. Included are intriguing views of the moons Titan, Tethys and Rhea. But most stunning is a color view of the tiny moon Mimas against a backdrop of enormous ring shadows. Wow!
