Rings and Shadows
Date: 10 May 2004
Saturn's rings cast threadlike shadows on the planet's northern hemisphere. Note the translucent C ring, and thin outermost F ring. The image was taken with the Cassini narrow angle camera in visible light on May 10, 2004, at a distance of 27.2 million kilometers (16.9 million miles) from Saturn. Image scale is 162 kilometers (101 miles) per pixel. Contrast in the image was enhanced to aid visibility.
