SUMMARY: This photograph shows two of Saturn's ring shepherd moons surrounded by halos of icy particles: Prometheus (at left) and Pandora (at right). Prometheus tugs at Saturn's rings pulling a stream of particles towards it as it orbits the giant planet. Cassini took this image on October 29, 2005 when it was approximately 459,000 kilometers (285,000 miles) from Pandora and 483,500 kilometers (300,500 miles) from Prometheus.
