Cassini Sees Mimas and Janus Mutual Event

Cassini captured another mutual event in which Mimas went in front of Janus from Cassini's perspective. Janus is one of Saturn's smaller satellites, only 200 km across while Mimas is 400 km across. A few weeks ago, Cassini captured a mutual event with Dione moving in front of Rhea from Cassini's perspective.

The entire series of images can be seen at the Cassini Raw Images, just click on the Title link for this post, tap on Search Image without selecting search paramters (or search for Narrow Angle images of Janus). For the actual eclipse shots, go here and here.

If anyone makes an animated gif of this, let me know.
