Shadows, Rings, and Mystery Hazes

NASA yesterday released a new image from Cassini of the shadow of Saturn cast across its rings. While a wealth of images have been returned by Cassini in the past few weeks, only a relative few have been processed. The rest remain in raw format awaiting future processing. All images, raw and processed, are available on the Cassini-Huygens website.

The day before, NASA released a false-color image of Titan that brings out the haze layers in its atmosphere. Such images will help scientists better understand the activity in Titan’s atmosphere.
