Pretty in pink
The NASA/ESA/ASI Cassini-Huygens spacecraft returned this colour image of Saturn's rings, along with three of Saturn's smaller moons, viewed at a distance of 8.2 million kilometres.
Saturn's rings are prominently shown in this true colour image, along with three of Saturn's smaller moons. From left to right, they are Prometheus, Pandora and Janus.
Prometheus and Pandora are often called the 'F ring shepherds', as they control and interact with Saturn's F ring, seen between them.
This image was taken on 18 June 2004, with the NASA/ESA/ASI Cassini-Huygens spacecraft narrow-angle camera, at a distance of 8.2 million kilometres from Saturn.
The Cassini-Huygens mission is a co-operative project of NASA, ESA and ASI, the Italian space agency.
