Mimas/Tethys Eclipse
"Astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez was doing some work on various eclipses in the solar system, so I did this image to complement that work. The piece was done before Saturn reached equinox, so we had not yet seen long shadows across the rings. It was fun to try to imagine what would be coming up through the eyes of Cassini!"
