A quintet of Saturn’s moons dance elegantly above the planet’s famed rings in this photo taken by the Cassini spacecraft and released November 4.In orbit around the ringed planet since 2004, Cassini has offered unparalleled views of Saturn’s rings and moons, including this picture shot from slightly above the plane of the rings.
On the right, the closest moon is Rhea, which is Saturn’s second-largest satellite, and in the center is Enceladus, shining brightly with frost vented from its south pole geysers.
