Given that the orbit of each of these moons lies very close to the plane of Saturn’s rings, can you discern their position in space at the time of the image?
( The orbit of Mimas has an inclination of 1.56 degrees, the other orbits have inclinations less than 1/2 degree. )
I’ve seen that in a telescope.
I’ve also froze outside in the middle of the night because I couldn’t stop looking.
It’s just stunningly beautiful.
If you haven’t actually seen it, get a telescope, or look up a star party near you when Saturn is visible, and go have a look for yourself. Bring your family and friends. You’ll never forget it!
