I understand that the Epimetheus pass on Sunday 6th December 2015 will be a close one, approx 3,000 KM? If so the ISS NAC may resolve details to approx 3 metres ??? Andrew R Brown.

Absolutely astonishing imagery. Really enjoyed the E20 images too of the north polar region too. On image: http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/multimedia/images/raw/casJPGFullS91/N00250525.jpg is that a crescent Epimetheus to the lower right? Andrew R Brown.

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

Yet another spectacular picture. There appear to be two Sulci spewing by Enceladus’ South Pole. Which puzzles me: The Saturn system rotates in the same sense as Earth, which means Enceladus and Epimetheus have to be moving rightwards, as Saturn itself is off Stage Right. Cassini was outside both satellites’ orbits at the time. Wouldn’t that therefore make their sunlit parts the Trailing Hemispheres?

Nice closeup image of Epimetheus. Nice to see images of this co-orbital moon.

Hi Cassini Team, Do we have any time lapse video of the orbital swap of Janus and Epimetheus? Hoping for any updates on that. regards, Cassini fan

Carolyn, PIA11544, or Cas5689-13230-2 seems to show a brightening in the widest part of Epimetheus’ shadow. I don’t recall any through-holes in any pictures of that little ice ball, nor did they reveal it to be washer-shaped. Pray tell, how can a shadow behave this way? Is Epi the same angular size as the Sun just now, and therefore this becomes an interior diffraction spot? It is mighty intriguing.


Epimetheus' Shadow

Compared to the image "Groundhog Day on Saturn" (image 3/23/09), the elapsed time between the capture of these two images is about 19 weeks. The camera angle view here in contrast to that image is a difference of 86 degrees. Revisiting the "Groundhog Day" photo reveals a very thick and dark shadow of Epimetheus across the A ring taken on 1/8/09 which was below the ring plane. Here, at the above angle ring plane view, the shadow cast onto the A ring is much lighter, thinner and narrow and stretches further towards the Encke gap than the image in "Groundhog Day".

Great image. Saw this once before as a shadowy noisey raw image. It's great to see that some of the smaller moons are also being researched like Hyperion, Janus, Epimetheus, Helene, Telesto, Phoebe, etc. Wonder if Janus is like Epimetheus, an icy rubble pile held together by gravity? Does anyone know when the Helene encounter will be? Is there any chance of a close passes of Calypso, Telesto (again) Polydeuces, etc? Andrew Brown.
