Summertime on Saturn
Being this photogenic, Saturn is unquestionably the Lord of the Rings. NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope captured this image of Saturn with two of its icy moons, Mimas (right) and Enceladus (bottom), clearly visible. These images help astronomers track the shifting weather patterns and storms on gas planets.
