Cassini caught a family portrait of five of Saturnís moons in this image from July 2011. From left to right, they are Janus (179 km across), Pandora (81 km across, nestled in the rings), Enceladus (504 km across, appearing half lit above the rings in the center of the image), Mimas (396 km across), and Rhea (1528 km across, to the far right).

I was struck by how much your space junk map made us resemble a gas giant with accretion disk. Hehe.

Peace,

And most of that junk has to come down, somewhere, sometime. Be ready to duck. :)

The Cassini mission has been a great success. Don't forget the Huygens lander on Titan.
