Setting Your Sights on Saturn
This stirring scene captures some of the grandeur of the Saturn system while also allowing a simultaneous glimpse beneath the hazes that cover both Saturn and Titan. The infrared view reveals bright, swirling clouds and zonal cloud bands in the giant planet's atmosphere, as well as a hint of the dark, equatorial terrain on Titan (3,200 miles across). Dione (700 miles across) is visible near right, on the far side of the ringplane. This view looks toward the unilluminated side of the rings from less than a degree above the ringplane.
