We’ve been loving the pictures that the Cassini Spacecraft has been beaming back of Saturn and its various moons: this latest one is a gorgeous portrait of Rhea and Tethys.
We know the Cassini spacecraft around Saturn took this photo of a trio of moons. Rhea and Enceladus are easy to spy bracketing Saturn’s rings. So fess up: Which one of you stole Atlas?
This is really cool: the New York Times has put together a really astounding interactive feature that lets you explore Saturn and its moons through NASA’s probes.
NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day is back with a winner: Saturn's crescent phase captured by Cassini with its rings and the moon Rhea. It looks like a menacing eye from a colossal evil being from another dimension opening in the darkness of space, watching all of us. There's an amazing movie too:

The Cassini spacecraft has been able to capture this stunning image of five Saturn moons in one single frame. From left to right: Janus, Pandora, Enceladus, Mimas and Rhea.
I've got the world on a string/ I'm sitting on a rainbow/ Got the string around my finger/ What a world, what a life—I'm in love!
