SUMMARY: Saturn's small moon Epimetheus is seen here just beneath the planet's ring plane. The bright, knotted core of Saturn's F ring is visible, with thin, dusty strands on either side. Epimetheus is only 116 kilometers (72 miles) across, and part of it is illuminated by reflected light from Saturn. Cassini took this image on June 20, 2005 when it was 1.8 million kilometers (1.1 million miles) from Epimetheus.
