|More terrific photos from the Cassini orbiter! I still can't believe that it's possible to see the surface of a moon circling far away Saturn. Here's (above) a giant crater on Mimas. Be sure to click to enlarge all of the photos in this post.|
|Above, another moon of Saturn, a small one called Phoebe. Maybe it's a captured comet.|
|No doubt everybody here is familiar with the Horsehead Nebula. I thought you'd like to see it in context, framed by a ring of gas. The horsehead is the backlit, little chess piece in the upper middle of the picture.|
This is a detail of the edge of a another nearby galaxy. Enlargement is a must.
