  Night Side Rings

Night Side Rings
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute

Uploader comment: Saturn casts a wide shadow across its rings in this Cassini spacecraft view which looks toward the darkened southern hemisphere of the night side of the planet. Janus (111 miles, or 179 kilometers across) appears as a small white dot in the bottom left of the view, beyond the rings.
