Cassini Views of Saturn

Cassini Images Saturn\'s South Pole, July 14, 2008Cassini has been busy orbiting Saturn for the past month, but because of it’s current orbit (once around in almost exactly 7 days; highly elliptical, crossing Saturns poles on each trip) the spacecraft is not getting very close to too many of Saturn’s moons.

It is, however, getting great views of Saturn’s polar regions.

Big hat tip to Emily at The Planetary Society.
