ARCING OVER SATURN
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft took this lovely image of Saturn’s rings on 15 June 2013. The view looks toward the sunlit side of the rings from 17 degrees above their plane. The wide-angle camera used a filter sensitive to near-infrared light, centered at 705 nanometers. At the time the image was taken, Cassini was approximately 1.1 million kilometers (657,000 miles) from Saturn.
