In the Company of Dione

NASA’s Cassini imaging scientists processed this view of Saturn’s moon Dione, taken during a close flyby on June 16, 2015. This was Cassini’s fourth targeted flyby of Dione and the spacecraft had a close approach altitude of 321 miles (516 kilometers) from Dione’s surface.

Also making an appearance in this image is Saturn’s geysering moon Enceladus, seen in the upper right, just above the bright line of Saturn’s rings.

North on Dione is up and rotated 44 degrees to the left. The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft’s wide-angle camera on June 16, 2015.

The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 48,000 miles (77,000 kilometers) from Dione and at a sun-Dione-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 128 degrees. Image scale is 3 miles (5 kilometers) per pixel.

@sprittibee God’s creation in all its breathtaking splendor. Saturn is the most beautiful jewel in our star’s dazzling necklace, in my opinion.
