NASA news: What is this 'spectacular' black hole on Saturn? Cassini snaps amazing pictures 1

“In addition, from its vantage point in space Cassini sometimes witnesses occultations of the Sun, when Saturn blocks out the light of the Sun as seen from the spacecraft.”

Another Cassini image shows the lunar eclipse of Titan as seen from a different angle.

In this picture, you can see the bright outline of the Sun behind the largest of Saturn’s moons.

In the foreground, you can make out Saturn’s rings and in the lower right is the small moon Enceladus.

NASA said: “Cassini also images moons and rings at high phase angles, which means the subject is backlit by the Sun, with the Sun just out of the frame.
