 Faint wisps of cloud visible in the atmosphere give it a mysterious look, as ring shadows trace delicate, curving lines across the planet, at the bottom.

The view in the image looks toward the sunlit side of the rings from about 8 degrees above the ring plane.

Cassini gets ready for closest-ever observations of Saturn

Cassini gets ready for closest-ever observations of Saturn

Beginning on November 30, Cassini's orbit will send the spacecraft just past the outer edge of the main rings.

To us laymans, it may seem strange and out of place, but for scientists at NASA, the glow holds an interesting reason.

In a new image released by NASA, the visible features are a mixture of tectonics – the bright, linear features – and impact cratering – the round features, which are spread across the entire surface.

 The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on August 15, 2015.

Cassini strikes again – NASA's Saturn probe spacecraft discovers flooded canyons on Titan!

Cassini strikes again – NASA's Saturn probe spacecraft discovers flooded canyons on Titan!

This is big news considering it is the first direct evidence of the existence of liquid-filled channels on Titan, as well as the first observation of canyons hundreds of meters deep.

Earlier in Cassini's mission, Saturn's shadow over its rings stretched completely across, covering all them.

Are Saturn's rings bending? NASA releases strange image from Cassini (Pic inside)

Are Saturn's rings bending? NASA releases strange image from Cassini (Pic inside)

In the image, which was released on Monday, Saturn's A and F rings appear bizarrely warped where they intersect the planet's limb, whose atmosphere acts here like a very big lens.

Pan and moons like it have profound effects on Saturn's rings, ranging from clearing gaps to creating new ringlets, to raising vertical waves that rise above and below the ring plane.

A chance meeting: Moon to make contact with Saturn tonight!

A chance meeting: Moon to make contact with Saturn tonight!

Tonight step outside after 9:30 pm and look at the night sky in southeast direction. The magnificient ringed planet can be easily spotted next to the moon.

There are three large seas, all located close to the moon's north pole, surrounded by numerous of smaller lakes in the northern hemisphere. Just one large lake has been found in the southern hemisphere.
