More Images of Saturn

NASA is now releasing a new image from Cassini a day. On May 10, Cassini imaged the shadows of Saturn’s rings on its surface and also the swirling bands of the planet’s atmosphere. Cassini is now officially in the Saturn planetary system as the gravity of Saturn holds more sway than the gravity of the Sun.
