Saturn, Titan and Enceladus (Picture of the Day)

Titan and Enceladus near Saturn's rings
This is a picture taken by the Cassini space craft, which was launched on 1997. The picture shows the two moons of Saturn - Titan and Enceladus. Titan can be easily seen in the picture but Enceladus is little bit harder to find in the picture, which is in the far right near Saturn's rings. This picture also shows the thinness of Saturn's rings. It is just about 1 km thick, which is very tiny when compared with Saturn's size. This is a picture taken by the Cassini space craft, which was launched on 1997. As of now, Cassini has operations planned till 2017.
