Saturn’s moon Tethys orbits in front of the wide shadows cast by the rings onto the planet for this Cassini view.
Tethys (660 miles, 1062 kilometers across) appears just below the rings near the center of the image. This view looks toward the northern, sunlit side of the rings from less than one degree above the ring plane.
The image was taken with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on Dec. 7, 2011 using a spectral filter sensitive to wavelengths of near-infrared light centered at 752 nanometers. The view was obtained at a distance of approximately 1.1 million miles (1.8 million kilometers) from Tethys. Image scale is 66 miles (107 kilometers) per pixel on Tethys.

Hot colors to Cool colors (Red to yellow to green to cyan to blue to gray) are Big planets to Smaller planets, relative to the other planets in the system.
“FLY Everywhere I Go” Campaign | Design You Trust. World’s Most Provocative Social Inspiration.
Pittsburgh based Frequently Fly Clothing just recently released photos from a campaign they’re launching called “FLY Everywhere I Go.” The photos were shot by Jordan Beckham. It’s primarily a guy walking around in a NASA spacesuit, the photos feature the astronaut in everyday life situations (i.e. - on a public bus, on a subway, at a Taco Bell, at a festival, etc.) You can check out more of the campaign at here.
