  1. Cassini's close-up of Saturn

  2. An ultraviolet image released by NASA and the University of Colorado July 7, 2004 from the Cassini spacecraft in orbit around Saturn shows, from the inside out, the 'Cassini division' in faint red at (L) is followed by the A ring in its entirety.

  3. The planet Uranus is seen as a blue orb in the distance beyond Saturn's rings in this image captured by NASA's Cassini spacecraft April 11, 2014.

  4. The wide-angle camera on NASA's Cassini spacecraft has captured Saturn's rings and planet Earth and its moon in the same frame in this rare image taken on July 19, 2013 courtesy of NASA.

  5. The Cassini spacecraft took this mosaic of the planet Saturn and its rings backlit against the Sun on October 17, 2012 using infrared, red and violet spectral filters that were combined to create an enhanced-color view, in this handout image courtesy

  6. This image of Saturn's northern hemisphere was taken by NASA's Cassini spacecraft on Sept. 13, 2017. It is among the last images Cassini sent back to Earth.

  7. The surface of Saturn's geyser moon Enceladus is seen in this image released on May 31, 2012 by NASA's Cassini mission.

  8. NASA handout image shows Saturn's atmosphere and its rings in a false color composite made from 12 images, captured on January 12, 2011. The mosaic shows the tail of Saturn's huge northern storm.

  9. This false-color composite image, released by NASA September 23, 2010, is constructed from data obtained by NASA's Cassini spacecraft, shows the glow of auroras streaking out about 600 miles from the cloud tops of Saturn's south polar region, It is

  10. A handout photograph shows the first flash of sunlight reflected off a lake on Saturn's moon Titan taken by NASA's Cassini spacecraft on July 8, 2009. The glint off a mirror-like surface is known as a specular reflection.

  11. Titan, Saturn's largest moon appears before the planet as it undergoes seasonal changes in this natural color view from NASA's Cassini spacecraft in this handout released by NASA August 29, 2012.

  12. A bizarre six-sided feature encircling the north pole of Saturn is pictured by the visual and infrared mapping spectrometer on NASA's Cassini spacecraft, in this image released by NASA March 27, 2007.

  13. This composite image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft released by NASA March 13, 2007, shows evidence of seas, likely filled with liquid methane or ethane, in the high northern latitudes of Saturn's moon Titan.
