i didn't know Dione had such high contrasts. for a moment, i thought i was looking at Iapetus. were the contrasts enhanced?


Dione with Rings and Shadows

Images such as these have always been a particular favourite of mine. I call them "Kandinsky-esque" because they recall the balance and symmetry of that artist's work. Here Dione is the "point", the rings are the "line", and Saturn is the "plane". Beautiful!

i get a notion of the scale of what a "Full Saturn" must look like from the night sky of Dione, Mimas or Enceladus from this image.

This is one of the most spookiest, beautiful and ethereal images of Saturn with a single moon I have seen. The dark, looming mass of Saturn, the dominant crescent of Dione dwarfed by its maternal planet, and the sharply clear line of the rings. This is one of those "Kandinskiesque" images that Cassini has delivered so often. That wonderful balance of "point, line and plane" that epitomized that particular artist's work and is so dramatically created by nature and captured by human ingenuity in this image. The wonders that I have been allowed to perceive with Cassini are one of the many reasons why I admire the science of space exploration.

Just read on the NASA site today; Dione has an oxygen exoshpere. the Saturn system is full of interesting, and often surprising, objects.

What a beautiful image. Prometheus and Epimetheus make nice additions for the dione flyby.We get three moons for the price of one.

This is a rare image of Janus (left) and Prometheus together with Dione, because of their closeness together and the level of detail. From what I've seen in the "imaging diary" it's been 6 years since Janus and Prometheus appeared in such detail together (search for pia08192), though both of them were imaged separately in higher detail in 2009 and 2010.

I too feel like I'm there. And in a sense we are through Cassini which was only about 93,000 km from Dione at the time (less than 1/4 of the distance between the Earth and our Moon). By the way, the moon emerging from behind is Mimas (over 610,000 km away from Cassini). In raw image #3, Mimas is just going behind Dione. South is up.

For those who wish to know, the moon behind Dione is Mimas just entering its occulation. It took about 5 minutes to emerge (see raw image #2). South is up.

i really look forward to the gravity pass of Dione. my guess is rocky core and ice mantle.
