Loved this In Focus gallery of images of Saturn and its moons shot by the Cassini spacecraft.  Some really cool stuff here:

A quartet of Saturn’s moons, from tiny to huge, surround and are embedded within the planet’s rings in this Cassini composition. Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, is in the background of the image. Next, the wispy terrain on the trailing hemisphere of Dione can be seen on that moon which appears just above the rings at the center of the image. Saturn’s small moon Pandora orbits beyond the rings on the right of the image. Finally, Pan can be seen in the Encke Gap of the A ring on the left of the image. (NASA/JPL/Space Science Institute)
