    Giovanni Domenico Cassini aka Jean-Dominique Cassini (1625-1712). An Italian astronomer who became director of the Paris Observatory and a nationalized Frenchman. For his early observations of Saturn's rings and moons NASA named its Cassini misison to Saturn in his honor. Cassini is still taking fabulous pictures of the Saturnian system.

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...

NASA's Cassini spacecraft has been studying Saturn and its moons since it entered orbit in 2004. This image, taken on Oct. 5, 2008, is a stunning mosaic of the geologically active Enceladus after a Cassini flyby.

Saturn's moon Iapetus, showing the bright trailing hemisphere. Part of the dark area appears on the right - the equatorial ridge is in profile on the right limb. The large crater Engelier is near the bottom; to its lower right is the rim of the partly obliterated, Gerin.
