New Cassini Image: Amazing Icy Moons

CICLOPS has released this processed view of Mimas, Dione, and Rhea (from left to right) in the same narrow angle field of view. This alignment of moons was captured on March 15, 2005. The trailing hemispheres of each moon are on display here. For Dione and Rhea, this includes their respective wispy terrain near their limbs. An interesting cross section of the edge-on rings here can be seen as it bisects Dione.
