NASA's Cassini spacecraft obtained this raw image of Saturn's moon Titan on Oct. 18, 2010. Bright clouds streak the moon's midsection, likely an indication of changing seasons and the arrival of sprin...› View Image
NASA's Cassini spacecraft obtained this raw image of Saturn's moons Titan and Tethys on Oct. 18, 2010. Titan, Saturn's largest moon, is the larger, hazy moon in the background. Tethys is the bright ic...› View Image
NASA's Cassini spacecraft obtained this raw image of the moon Mimas on Oct. 16, 2010, just before Mimas went into shadow behind Saturn. The camera was approximately 101,552 kilometers (63,1010 miles) ...› View Image
NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured a picture of the tiny, 4-kilometer-wide (3-mile-wide) moon Pallene, in front of the planet Saturn. Saturn is more than 120,000 kilometers (75,000 miles) wide at its ...› View Image
NASA's Cassini spacecraft took this raw image of Saturn's moon Titan on Oct. 14, 2010, kicking off an action-packed long weekend that took the spacecraft by eight other moons. The camera was pointing ...› View Image
NASA's Cassini spacecraft took these two wide-angle images of the Saturnian moons Dione and Rhea on Oct. 17, 2010. The images are raw images that have not been validated or calibrated. The image of Di...› View Image
This set of enhanced-color maps made from data obtained by NASA's Cassini spacecraft show Saturn's moons Mimas, Enceladus, Tethys, Dione and Rhea. The global maps show the colorful splotches and bands...› View Image
This enhanced-color view of Saturn's moon Mimas was made from images obtained by NASA's Cassini spacecraft. It highlights the bluish band around the icy moon's equator. The view shows the hemisphere t...› View Image
This schematic graphic illustrates the bombardments that lead to colorful splotches and bands on the surfaces of several icy moons of Saturn. The arrow indicating the orbital motion of the moon is the...› View Image
These three enhanced-color views of an equatorial region on Saturn's moon Rhea were made from data obtained by NASA's Cassini spacecraft. The colors have been enhanced to show colorful splotches and b...› View Image
These three views of Saturn's moon Rhea were made from data obtained by NASA's Cassini spacecraft, enhanced to show colorful splotches and bands on the icy moon's surface. Scientists believe the reddi...› View Image
This false-color composite image, constructed from data obtained by NASA's Cassini spacecraft, shows the glow of auroras streaking out about 1,000 kilometers (600 miles) from the cloud tops of Saturn'...› View Image
This false-color composite image, constructed from data obtained by NASA's Cassini spacecraft, shows Saturn's rings and southern hemisphere. The composite image was made from 65 individual observation...› View Image
A quartet of false-color, composite images show the dance of Saturn’s southern lights in data obtained by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft. This image is among the first images to be released from a study th...› View Image
An unusually large propeller feature is detected just beyond the Encke Gap in this Cassini image of Saturn's outer A ring taken a couple days after the planet's August 2009 equinox.
This movie created from images obtained by NASA's Cassini spacecraft shows a propeller-shaped structure created by a hidden, embedded moon moving through one of Saturn's rings.
Cassini scientists have concluded that at least one of the large lakes observed on Saturn’s moon Titan contains liquid hydrocarbons, and have positively identified ethane. This result makes Titan the only place in our solar system beyond Earth known to have liquid on its surface.› View More Images
This Cassini movie -- the first of its kind -- shows lightning on Saturn's night side flashing in a cloud that is illuminated by light from Saturn's rings.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured the first lightning flashes on Saturn when it captured these images on August 17, 2009.
