Saturn’s rings may be vintage jewelry as old as the solar system, and they’re practically sparkling with water ice, according to data from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft.

Saturnian moons

A handout image dated 18 September 2012 and made available by NASA on 24 January 2013 showing the ring-region of Saturnian moons Prometheus and Pan, both caught 'herding' their respective rings. Through their gravitational disturbances of nearby ring particles, one moon maintains a gap in the outer A ring and the other helps keep a ring narrowly confined. Prometheus (53 miles, or 86 kilometers across), together with Pandora (not seen in this image), maintains the narrow F ring seen at the bottom left in this image. Pan (17 miles, or 28 kilometers across) holds open the Encke gap in which it finds itself embedded in the center. The bright dot near the inner edge of the Encke gap is a background star. This view looks toward the unilluminated side of the rings from about 29 degrees below the ringplane. The image was taken in visible violet light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera. The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 1.4 million miles (2.3 million kilometers) from Pan and at a Sun-Pan-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 98 degrees. Image scale is 9 miles (14 kilometers) per pixel.

This NASA image of the day shows Saturn’s moons Prometheus and Pan through Saturn’s rings captured in visible violet light by the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera.

NASAO

NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute ~ NASA released this rare view of Saturn taken from the Cassini spacecraft. the image was taken while Cassini was in the planet's shadow, so Saturn and its rings were backlit by the sun.
