Titan and Dione


Saturn’s third-largest moon Dione can be seen through the haze of its largest moon, Titan, in this view of the two posing before the planet and its rings. This view looks toward the side of Titan (3200 miles, 5150 kilometers across) and Dione (698 miles, 1123 kilometers across) facing away from Satrun. North is up on the moons. This view looks toward the northern, sunlit side of the rings from just above the ring plane.

Images taken with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera using red, green and blue spectral filters were combined to create this natural color view.
