The Sirens of Titan
In another striking photograph by our robot photographer Cassini and the imaging team here on earth, we see backlit moons of Saturn, Titan and the smaller Enceladus, bisected or just under the rings seen nearly edge on and appearing almost photo negative with the lighting. It looks like a well tempered damascene blade to me. Titan has a hazy atmosphere which is scattering the sunlight.
