Amazing photo from the Cassini Saturn probe

Amazing photo taken by Cassini of Saturn’s moon Rhea. The smaller moon below it is Epimetheus. It appears smaller because the distance between each other is the approximate distance between Earth and our moon. Cassini was about 750,000 miles from Rhea when the photo was taken — and Epimetheus was 990,000 miles away from Cassini.
