Rings and moons

Another stunning image from the Cassini spacecraft of Saturn's rings and the three moons: Mimas, Janus and Prometheus. Most of the images of Prometheus we have seen previously show the moon inside the F-ring from above or below the ring plane. This is the first image I recall seeing showing the moon orbiting above the plane of the rings...
