New Atlas Image: Embedded Atlas

CICLOPS has released this low resolution view of Saturn's inner moon Atlas. Atlas, a small moon only 32 km across, orbits just outside the main A ring of Saturn. This view also shows the ring system of Saturn, against a backdrop of Saturn's atmosphere, nearly edge-on. The resolution of this image is 5 km/pixel though the image has been magnified 2x to aid visibility.
