Three of Saturn's Moons

Obviously this isn't my picture, but it's one I came across looking at the Cassini Mission images.  It shows the enormity of Saturn.  In this picture, the craft is about twice the distance from Saturn than our moon is from earth.  The two moons you can see are smaller moons of Saturn, but I love how they just float there by their huge planet.   You can check out more pictures here.  You can see a third moon of Saturn on the far left side of the picture just above the ring.  It's so small that it's just a pixel.  It's humbling to look at pictures like this.  I love it.
