The Great Dance

The following are some beautiful raw images from Cassini. The probe is going through a pretty extensive orbital tour (dozens and dozens of orbits over four years). We will probably see a lot of such sights in months to come.

Tethys and Rhea passing in the night. Tethys is above and in the foreground of Rhea, so it looks bigger although it is actually smaller.

Dione slipping by cloudy Titan.

Enceladus floating down the ring-plane.

Rhea against the tip of the rings.
