Saturn above Rhea’s Horizon
This image shows Saturn above Rhea’s horizon and is an artistic combination of the following two images:
- Saturn with the big white storm on its northern hemisphere, taken by the Cassini spacecraft on January 02, 2011, from a mean distance of 2,556,958 kilometers.
Raw images taken using CB2, GRN and BL1 filters were combined to create this color view.
The color composite was rotated 180 degrees, cropped, downsized and blurred using Gaussian blur.
- The surface of Saturn’s moon Rhea, taken by the Cassini spacecraft on January 11, 2011,
from a distance of about 200 kilometers.
The image was rotated 127 degrees counterclockwise, cropped, sharpened and slightly colorized.
