SUMMARY: Cassini took this image of Dione set against giant Saturn as it approached the icy moon for its December 14th flyby. This picture, taken from 603,000 kilometers (375,000 miles), shows how Dione has colour variations across its surface, but it's largely gray. Several oval shaped storms are visible raging across Saturn's banded atmosphere.

Realy phantastic photo.
Could it be possible to place (somewhere here, or on special subweb page) such short videos (not only pictures) from (done by) space agencies...?
