Getting a Saturn Tan

These “true color” images in the Saturn system are cool. The “dark” side of the rings isn’t really dark; the Saturnian ring system isn’t a solid disk. It’s made up of particles and sunlight filters through ice and around specks and boulders and all to show up as a nice tan.

The icy moon Tethys, possibly home to ice geysers, shows its largest crater Odysseus near the sunset terminator.
