Cassini sees "spokes" on Saturn's rings?

The Voyager spacecraft imaged dark "spokes" on the rings of Saturn, a feature that the Cassini probe hasn't seen so far.

Two new raw images from Cassini appear to show a similar spoke-like feature, although its bright, not dark like the images from Voyager - image#1, image#2.

The feature is in a similar location on the rings in the two images, but different locations on the image - so its probably not a artifact. Intriguing!
