  Saturn Askew

Saturn Askew
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute

Uploader comment: As a convention for public release, Cassini images of Saturn are generally oriented so that Saturn appears north up, but the spacecraft views the planet and its expansive rings from all sorts of angles. Here, a half-lit Saturn sits askew as tiny Dione (698 miles or 1,123 kilometers across) looks on from lower left.
