New Mimas Image: Mimas Stares Back

CICLOPS has released this view of Mimas and the outer edge of Saturn's main and F rings. Herschel, the great crater of Mimas, can easily be seen in this view. Fine scale structure is just starting to be discernable in the rings, such as the halo surrounding the F ring and the moonlet Atlas. Resolution on Mimas is 13 km/pixel.
