Mimas and the Rings

Saturn's rings

Ring shadows on Saturn’s hazy atmosphere, attended by the little moon Mimas. Yet another striking scene rendered from archival data in approximately natural color by master image processor Gordan Ugarkovic.

That’s actually ring shadows, not the rings themselves. Notice how diffuse they look.

Also notice how I didn’t register the moving cloud patterns so the clouds have that rainbow effect. Cassini’s slow cameras can sometimes be a real pain…
