  Cassini - Across to Prometheus

Cassini - Across to Prometheus
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute

Uploader comment: The Cassini spacecraft looks across Saturn's rings and finds the moon Prometheus, a shepherd of the thin F ring. Prometheus (53 miles, or 86 kilometers across) looks like a small white bulge near the F ring --the outermost ring seen here -- above the center of the image.
