Cassini - Smudge of a Shadow
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute

Uploader comment: The shadow of the moon Mimas creates a smudge on the southern hemisphere of Saturn in this view from the Cassini spacecraft. Mimas does not appear here, but it does cast its shadow on the planet in the lower left of the image.
