Cool image time! The image above, cropped and reduced in resolution to show here, was created by Cassini from 42 images taken on September 13, 2017, two days before the spacecraft dived into Saturn to end its mission.
Be sure to take a look at the full image. It shows six of Saturn’s moons, as well as many stars.
