Ring Shadows Surround Saturn’s South
Cassini gets a great look at Saturn’s southern half in this color-composite, assembled from raw images acquired on July 13, 2013.
Click for a larger view in my Flickr stream (the original raw images were only 1024 px, so it’s still a little grainy.) I adjusted the channel histograms quite a bit to achieve a more natural — albeit brighter — “Saturny” coloration.
In this rotated view, Saturn’s south pole is just off frame at lower right. The barely-there bands of the innermost D ring can be seen silhouetted against the planet at top center.
