The above image shows the tiny cratered moon Janus passing in front of Saturn's famous rings. It's dwarfed by whopper of a moon Titan behind, with a thin cresent lit by the Sun. Titan is bigger than inner planet Mercury.

This snap was taken on Tuesday with Cassini's narrow-angle camera.

Cassini recently found evidence of water on another of Saturn's moons.®
