Satürn’ün Üstten Görüntüsü

This view looks toward the sunlit side of the rings from about 12 degrees above the ring plane. The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera. The view was obtained at a distance of approximately 1.4 million miles (2.3 million km) from Saturn and at a Sun-Saturn-spacecraft or phase angle of 105 degrees. Image scale is 9 miles (14 km) per pixel. Thickened parts of F ring circled

Is Saturn's moon about the crash into the giant planet's ring?

It may look as though #Saturn's moon #Mimas is crashing through the rings in this image taken by @NASA's #Cassini spacecraft, but Mimas is actually 28,000 miles (45,000 kilometers) away from the rings. There is a strong connection between the icy moon and Saturn's rings, though. Gravity links them together and shapes the way they both move. The gravitational pull of Mimas (246 miles or 396 kilometers across) creates waves in Saturn's rings that are visible in some Cassini images. This view…

Saturn's moon Mimas appears to be crashing through its rings - but it's just an optical illusion. NASA's Cassini spacecraft Mimas is actually miles kilometers) away from the rings.

‘Tiger Stripes’ on Enceladus The Saturn moon Enceladus harbors a big ocean of liquid water beneath its icy crust that may be capable of supporting life as we know it, a new study reports.
