  The Rite of Spring

The Rite of Spring
Image credit: NASA/JPL/Space Science Institute

Uploader comment: Of the countless equinoxes Saturn has seen since the birth of the solar system, this one, captured in a mosaic of light and dark, is the first witnessed up close by an emissary from Earth none other than our faithful robotic explorer, Cassini. Seen from our planet, the view of Saturn's rings during equinox is extremely foreshortened and limited.
