    Saturn’s moon Iapetus photographed by the Cassini spacecraft. The right side is overexposed because it’s illuminated by the Sun. The left side glows by light reflecting off Saturn’s clouds. Since sunlight is much fainter at Saturn’s distance than at Earth’s, Cassini had to make a long time exposure to capture this image. (Credit: NASA) Mona Evans, "Earthshine" www.bellaonline.c...

    ▶ Rhea Transits Saturn - YouTube (Credit: Cassini Imaging Team, SSI, JPL, ESA, NASA) The slim crescent of the moon Rhea transits a crescent Saturn. In an interplay of contrast and shadow, the moon goes dark against the planet, and then its crescent suddenly brightens as it slips in front of Saturn's night side. The view is edge-on to the rings, which you can see as a dark line. Mona Evans, “Rhea Moon of Saturn” www.bellaonline.c...

    False-color image of Europa's trailing northern hemisphere. (Credit: NASA/JPL/University of Arizona) A geological survey of Europa showed a massive, 20,000 square-km portion of its surface was gone. In Sept 2014, researchers published evidence suggesting a plate tectonic system may be moving old portions of the surface beneath adjacent plates. If confirmed, this would make Europa the only known place in the solar system (apart from Earth) whose surface is being shaped by active plate tectonics.
