Here’s a particularly nice view of Saturn backlit by the Sun, captured by Cassini while on the ringed planet’s night side on August 12, 2013. Titan is visible at the upper right, its thick atmosphere scattering sunlight into a nearly-complete ring around it.
The color-composite above was assembled from raw images captured in red, green, and blue color filters. Thanks to Cassini and the imaging team at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, CO for the opportunity to share another fantastic vista from Saturn!
