Beautiful. Is it hexagonal just because Saturn is so large and the winds do not meet? Jupiter also has a hexagonal shape at the pole.

Very Interesting. What is obvious are the number of impact craters, at least three with central peaks. This area looks more like the Jupiter moon Callisto, Saturn moon Rhea or Uranus moon Umbriel, with liquid hydrocarbons filling some of the colder hollows and craters. Will be interesting to see some more recent SAR imagery of this area. Andrew R Brown.

I like to imagine what an ET field trip would be like. Just think of hopping aboard the school's 3,000-seat shuttle with my imaging device tucked away in my "Is there Life on Earth?" lunchbox along with a 2,ooo calorie Spicy Jumbo Jupiter burger ( red spot connotes chipotle flavor) and Saturn rings. We whiz through a gap in the rings of Saturn as we head up to dive into the clouds of the North Pole there. Faaaaantaastic! Don't want to leave such a beautiful place, yet there is so much to see just around this one planet that we'll be here for days.

Beautiful! The swirl of gas on Saturn reminds me of Jupiter's red spot.

Cassini has shared images of Earth and Venus with us from Saturn, and the suggestion was made to find Mercury and Mars as "morning stars." but i wonder what Jupiter would look like from Saturn. Venus and Earth look awesome. Jupiter should look spectacular. will Cassini be operational long enough to get a good viewing angle?


Orange and Blue Hazes

Otherworldly fascinating ! Absolutely amazing ! Undoubtfully one of the best color images of the mission. Congratulations ! Looking to me far more like an orange giant planet ( not Saturn ) ( not Jupiter ) with a blue ring , but the ring being far too thick. The 'ring' has got a 'gap' at the right of the image where the color is more orangish letting the 'planet' shine thru. Of course my scientific point of view says that this is not the case. It's Titan, the large orange moon of Saturn. I suppose that at the right the more orangish part within the blue haze is where the bluish haze is thinner letting shine thru the orange one partially.

What a stunning image!!!! Saturn is jealous, for sure, and wants to look like Jupiter :-D

Hi Dragon_of_Luck_Mah_Jonng1971. I agree with you, many of those craters are very Mimas like. I still think that Rhea is very unevolved, one of the largest, in fact potetially the second largest unevolved object in the entire Solar System, only the Jupiter moon Callisto taking # 1 in that list. The similar sized Uranus moons Titania & Oberon are certainly far more evolved than Rhea, Titania has huge graben, possible frosting & a large smoother region with smaller & softened craters & Oberon although cratered, shows signs of cryovolcanism with many craters having dark floors, at least on huge chasm, many craters appear 'softened' like Enceladus, Dione, Miranda, Ariel, Titania, Triton & Ganymede, worlds that have been & some may, in the case of Enceladus & Triton still are geologically active. Rhea shows none of that, a surface that is practically craters on craters on craters. Some faulting is present, but how much of that is due to the Tirawa Basin forming event or other impacts, remains to be seen. Rhea is certainly a relic from the earliest days, much to tell us about the history of the Kronian system ,regarding the environment this far out from the Sun & cratering rates of the Kronian system from the period shortly after the formative period. Rhea is fascinating, not so much because of Rhea itself, but because of what Rhea can tell us about the history of the Kronian system as a whole. Iapetus is another moon interesting for the same reason, aside from the huge mountain ridge, little else appears to have happened there either, Mimas too. Rhea is extremely photogenic too. It's an amazing surface visually, craters of differing shapes & sizes, some regions eppear more hilly than others, etc. Yes they are Cosmic Rays @ the lower left. Andrew Brown.

Hi lsludwig1, Yes I agree, Hyperion is very curious. One idea is that the deep fluted craters are due to normal craters being deepened by the dak dusty floors absorbing what little sunlight is out here & 'burning' a deeper hole, giving Hyperion the peculiar sponge like appearance. Also Hyperion is the least dense 'solid' body at only 0.55 Gcm3, just over half that of solid H2O ice, suggesting that Hyperion is an icy rubble pile held together by gravity. Certainly sopme asteroids are like this, main belt asteroid 253 Mathilde certainly so, rather carbonaceous materials rather than ice, the Mars moon Phobos (possibly Deimos too) & the Jupiter moon Amalthea. Phoebe appears coherent as does the main belt asteroid 21 Lutetia, so not all 'small' bodies are rubble piles, but Hyperion almost certainly is. Whether or not Hyperion is a captured comet is open to question, where as Phoebe most certainly is. Shame we cannot get another close pass of Phoebe, but I think we will see Hyperion again with Cassini. Hi Carolyn, Do we know when yeaterday's Rhea imagery will be avaliable? Hope Cassini has not gone into safing. Andrew Brown.


Lightning Flashing on Saturn

I've the audio recording you mention and it makes me to imagine mighty lightning strikes falling into the never-ending Jovian atmosphere. As a side note, after reading your comment, I've searched for lightning in Jupiter, and both Galileo and Cassini imaged also flashes on Jupiter's night side.
