The Cassini spacecraft captured this 2005 shot of one of Saturn’s many moons, the icy Tethys, as it orbited the gas giant planet.

A Moon Of Saturn Has Its Moment In The Sun In This Stunning Ringscape

NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day 2015 April 5 Saturn, Tethys, Rings, and ShadowsSeen from ice moon Tethys, rings and shadows would display fantastic views of the Saturnian system.

The shadow of Saturn on the rings, which stretched across all of the rings earlier in Cassini's mission (see PIA08362), now barely makes it past the Cassini division.

The Cassini spacecraft takes an angled view toward Saturn, showing the southern reaches of the planet with the rings on a dramatic diagonal. The moon Enceladus appears as a small, bright speck in the lower left of the image.

The soft, bright-and-dark bands displayed by Saturn in this view from NASA's Cassini spacecraft are the signature of methane in the planet's atmosphere.

The Cassini spacecraft captures a rare family photo of three of Saturn's moons that couldn't be more different from each other! As the largest of the three, Tethys (image center) is round and has a variety of terrains across its surface. Meanwhile, Hyperion (to the upper-left of Tethys) is the "wild one" with a chaotic spin and Prometheus (lower-left) is a tiny moon that busies itself sculpting the F ring.

The Odd Trio

A 2014 Cassini image captured a rare view of three of Saturn's moons. This dramatic look shows the planet's rings along with Tethys, Hyperion and Prometheus. - Page 7

Titan and Dionne in front of rings and Saturn.

The scene features Titan, largest, and Dione, third largest moon of Saturn. Remarkably thin, the bright rings still cast arcing shadows across the planet's cloud tops at the bottom of the frame.

In 2006 April, Cassini captured Saturn's A and F rings stretching in front of cloud-shrouded Titan.

This portrait looking down on Saturn and its rings was created from images obtained by NASA's Cassini spacecraft on Oct. It was made by amateur image processor and Cassini fan Gordan Ugarkovic.

Like a cosmic bull's-eye Saturn's moons Enceladus and Tethys line up almost perfectly for the Cassini spacecraft cameras.  Since the two moons are not only aligned but also at relatively similar distances from Cassini the apparent sizes in this image are a good approximation of the relative sizes of Enceladus  and Tethys  by nasa

The vibrant magentas and blues in this Hubble image of the barred spiral galaxy reveal that the galaxy is ablaze with star formation. Also known as the Southern Pinwheel, the galaxy lies 15 million light-years away in the constellation Hydra.
