Holiday Greetings from Saturn

To celebrate the holiday season and the close of another year, the Cassini Imaging Team shares today two colorful views of the ringed planet, with best wishes to all our fellow planetary explorers.

Dec 24, 2007: The Painted Globe - Saturn in the Cassini era has proved to be an unexpectedly colorful place, compared to the browns and golds imaged by the two Voyager spacecraft.
Dec 24, 2007: Moon Patrol - This colorful view, taken from edge-on with the ringplane, contains four of Saturn's attendant moons.
