1020x1020x1
Two tiny moons of Saturn, almost lost amid the planet's enormous rings, are seen orbiting in this image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft. Pan, lower-right, is in the process of overtaking the slower Atlas, visible at upper-left.

NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured this view of Saturn's moon Atlas (30 kilometers, or 19 miles across), with its smooth equatorial ridge, during a moderately close flyby on Dec. 6, 2015. The view offers one of Cassini's best glimpses of Atlas.

Saturn's small moons Atlas, Prometheus, and Epimetheus keep each other company in this image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft of the planet's night side. It seems fitting that they should do so since in Greek mythology, their namesakes were brothers.

NASA's Cassini spacecraft looks past Saturn's main rings to spy the tiny moon Atlas, which orbits between the main rings and the thin F ring. The main rings are closer to the spacecraft than Atlas is, and the moon appears as only a small, white dot.
