The pictures that Cassini takes of Saturn and its moons continue to be phenomenal.

The Cassini spacecraft took this photo of Saturn’s moon, Tethys, 15 degrees above Saturn’s ringplane. It’s quite a contrast when you consider the fact that Tethys is 1,062 km, or 660 miles in diameter while Saturn is 60,268 km, or 37,200 miles wide.

This image utilized visible red light with Cassini’s wide-angle camera. Taken on May 13, 2008, the spacecraft was 1.3 million km, or 836,000 miles from Saturn.
