  Atlas in the Distance

Atlas in the Distance
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute

Uploader comment: The Cassini spacecraft looks past Saturn's main rings to spy the tiny moon Atlas, which orbits between the main rings and the thin F ring. The main rings are closer to the spacecraft than Atlas is, and the moon appears as only a small, white dot in the center of the image.
