Just found this article in the Daily Mail

These stunning images of Saturn taken by Nasa's Cassini spacecraft show the ringed planet, its moons and rings in the most incredible detail yet.

Extraordinary glimpses of the planet's atmosphere and surfaces add to our expanding understanding of the sixth planet in the solar system, as the Equinox mission approaches its second year.

The images show the incredible differences within the Saturn system. In one image, serene-looking rings are elegantly stacked up around its equator, making a striking contrast to the cratered appearance of its plethora of moons.

There is also some cool vid.

They are beautiful arn't they. There is an image there where one of the moons effects the rings and leaves it warped. I think the Moon was prometheus. Just beautiful.

great post, some stunning images there. Apart from Europa, Titan is the one place where i think we might find evidence of life

Its interesting that you mention titan as the article in the OP also says this.

Observations of Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, have shed new light on the likely appearance of Earth before life evolved, Nasa believes.

Experts claim the many parallels can be seen in its land formations, which include lakes, rivers, dunes, mountains and possibly volcanoes.

Weather patterns also show striking similarity to those on our own planet, with clouds, rain and snow.

I think your hopes for Titan match mine. Lets keep our fingers crossed.

Just thought I'd add some linkage to NASA and Cassini for those that are interested in other Saturn related material and images.
Worth a look.

Great find. Best pics i've seen yet... I just got a nice telescope and although I won't see this well it will still be nice to see it live "in the gas" haha

Thanks, great pics arn't they. Glad you liked the link. Cool on the telescope dude, I'm jealous. I bought my niece a telescope for xmas and ever since I've been pondering an "investment" in one myself.
