    Saturn's G Ring

    SUMMARY: This Cassini photograph shows Saturn's faint G ring, with its sharp inner edge and more diffuse outer boundary. When Cassini arrived at Saturn nearly two years ago, it flew directly through this ring, using its main antenna as a shield; a wise move as it was struck several times by icy particles. This image was taken on January 19, 2006 when Cassini was 1.2 million km (700,000 miles) from Saturn.

    really interesting story about the rings of saturn. people are more curious about its moon encledus, since it has some water evidence as scintists are telling and cassini also got the evidence of the same.

    the saturn is really great planet in our solar system.
