This narrow-angle camera image of Saturn's B Ring and Cassini Division was taken through the Clear filter from a distance of 12.6 million km on 3 November 1980. The Cassini Division separating the A and B Rings is clearly not an empty region. The Division shows several substantial well-defined ringlets.

The Voyager Project is managed for NASA by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.
