Life is hard for a little moon. Epimetheus, seen here with Saturn in the background, is lumpy and misshapen, thanks in part to its size and formation process.
A bright disruption in Saturn's narrow F ring suggests it may have been disturbed recently.
During a recent stargazing session, NASA's Cassini spacecraft watched a bright star pass behind the plume of gas and dust that spews from Saturn's icy moon Enceladus.
At first glance, Saturn's rings appear to be intersecting themselves in an impossible way.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft has detected the faint but distinct signature of dust coming from beyond our solar system.
Saturn's beautiful rings form a striking feature, cutting across this image of two of the planet's most intriguing moons.
In a nod to extraterrestrial mountaineers of the future, scientists working on NASA's Cassini mission have identified the highest point on Saturn's largest moon, Titan.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured this view of Saturn's moon Enceladus that shows wrinkled plains that are remarkably youthful in appearance, being generally free of large impact craters.
Although Tethys and Janus both orbit Saturn and are both made of more or less the same materials, they are very different worlds. Their contrasts are related, in large part, to their sizes.
Three of Saturn's moons -- Tethys, Enceladus and Mimas -- are captured in this group photo from NASA's Cassini spacecraft.
It seems intuitive that an opaque material should contain more stuff than a more translucent substance.
The soft, bright-and-dark bands displayed by Saturn in this view from NASA's Cassini spacecraft are the signature of methane in the planet's atmosphere.
This half-lit view of Enceladus bears a passing resemblance to similar views of Earth's own natural satellite, but the similarities end there.
It is easy to forget just how large Saturn is, at around 10 times the diameter of Earth.
Dione's beautiful wispy terrain is brightly lit alongside Saturn's elegant rings.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft has begun transmitting data and images from the mission's final close flyby of Saturn's active moon Enceladus.
A thrilling chapter in the exploration of the solar system will soon conclude, as NASA's Saturn-orbiting Cassini spacecraft makes its final close flyby of the ocean-bearing moon Enceladus.
