Description
March 18th, Saturn offered a beautiful line up of its moons. Enceladus, Thetys, Dione, Rhea, and Titan all lined up on one side of the planet, with Iapetus being a little further out. Hyperion was still further out and "fell off the chip" in this image. However a great image documenting the event of 6 (+1) moons lining up.
