The north pole of Saturn, in the fresh light of spring, is revealed in this color image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft.

The north pole of Saturn, in the fresh light of spring, is revealed in this color image. This is a natural-color view, which is what the human eye would see if we were there at Saturn. Saturn's rings are at the upper right of the image.

The robotic Cassini spacecraft now orbiting Saturn recently drifted in the giant planet's shadow for about 12 hours and looked back toward the eclipsed Sun. Saturn's rings light up so much that new rings were discovered: Saturn's E ring, the ring created by the newly discovered ice-fountains of the moon Enceladus, and the outermost ring visible above. Far in the distance, visible on the image left just above the bright main rings, is the almost ignorable pale blue dot of Earth.

In the Shadow of Saturn. January 2009 the Cassini spacecraft was orbiting Saturn and drifted in giant planet's shadow for about 12 hours. Far in the distance, at the left, just above the bright main rings, is the almost ignorable pale blue dot of Earth.

After more than 12 years studying Saturn, its rings and moons, our Cassini spacecraft has entered the final year of its epic voyage. The conclusion of.

A splendid image from the Cassini spacecraft peering over the shoulder of Saturn, through its rings, and across interplanetary space back toward the inner solar system. The tiny white dot behind the faint inner rings - just above and to the right of the image center - is the bright, cloudy, but distant terrestrial planet Venus.

Saturn's ring shows possible disturbance.

Saturn’s F ring appears distorted in this October 2013 picture from the Cassini spacecraft. The twisting may be because the F ring is crashing repeatedly into a “single small object”, NASA stated.

NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured this composite near-true-color view of a huge storm churning through the atmosphere in Saturn's northern hemisphere.
