Other Science-related ISS images today

Saturn mosaic

While not completely outer satellite related, CICLOPS has released other images related to this week's Science Cassini Special Issue. The best of the bunch is this view of Saturn, a mosaic consisting 42 frames (each consisting of three merged color images) showing the majesty that is Saturn. Other images released include a color view of the Dragon cloud, a storm system seen in the southern hemisphere of Saturn in mid-September of last year, as well as a series of images highlighting newly discovered ring features and evidence for an unseen moon in the Keeler Gap of the outer A ring.

Later today, we should see releases from other teams but I wouldn't count on it. When the papers show up on the Science magazine website, you can be sure that I will post the important satellite-related news here.
