This close-up view of Saturn's disc captures the transit of several moons across the face of the gas giant planet. The giant orange moon Titan — larger than the planet Mercury — can be seen at upper right. The white icy moons that are much closer to Saturn, hence much closer to the ring plane in this view, are, from left to right: Enceladus, Dione, and Mimas. Enceladus and Dione both cast a shadow on Saturn and the dark band running across the face of the planet slightly above the rings is the shadow of the rings on the planet.
