Saturn, Rhea And Enceladus

This view looks toward Saturn from edge-on with the ringplane. Rhea (1,528 kilometers, or 949 miles across, at right) and Enceladus (505 kilometers, or 314 miles across, at left) blow crosswise the field of honor of view as smart clouds roll through the gas giant's skies. The rings cast dark shadows onto the planet's mid-northern latitudes. - NASA/JPL/Space science constitute via place and aeronautics News
