Cassini is back amongst the moons

You might have noticed that we've not seen many of those nice images of Saturn's moons from Cassini over the last few months. That's because Cassini has been orbiting over Saturn's poles and giving us some fantastic views of the rings instead.

However that's changed again as the the spacecraft is back in an equatorial orbits and has already sent back some amazing images including this great image of Tethys below. As usual Emily Lakdawala has much more information and images on the Planetary Society Blog.
