This is another of those wonderful images that illustrates the geometry of the Saturn system. Notice the fine detail of the shadow of the rings across the clouds of Saturn, and the perfect partly-lit sphere of Tethys, much closer than it seems compared to the giant planet. I could stare at this all day. 😉
It makes me wonder what one would call it if one was in that shadow. Is it a solar eclipse if you’re in the shadow of the rings? And since the rings are made of myriads of relatively small particles, what would it look like to the human eye? A constant, glimmering Baily’s Beads effect? Could you see the corona, and how much smaller would it appear from Saturn than it does from Earth? Would it be too faint at this distance?
