I did see them posted elsewhere, but that certainly doesn't pose an issue!

They are, well, awesome doesn't really cover them, does it?

Fantastic photos - thanks for posting the link :D

I love the ones of Enceladus particularly - I find it quite humbling to think that I've actually seen this tiny, icy world with my own eyes so to see it all "close up and personal" is tremendous :)

My first thoughts too, wow that looks like the deathstar, glad you all enjoy the link one of my favourites is Picture 6 where the shadow of the rings on Saturn shows how thin those rings really are. Got me to thinking about what impact such a shadow would have on the ecology if earth had such a set of rings. How far does the shadow move with seasonal changes, does the band get thicker, long periods of night time in the summer that sort of thing or would it be solar eclipse type darkness how would life adapt?
