NASA : Three Times the Fun .- Tres veces la diversión en Saturno..........

Hola amigos: A VUELO DE UN QUINDE EL BLOG., la Agencia Espacial NASA, nos trae una venturosa información sobre un diversión que hacen los satélites de Saturno en sus movimientos a su alrededor, que fue captada por la sonda Cassini. NASA nos dice: Tetis (660 millas o 1.062 kilómetros de diámetro) aparece encima de los anillos, mientras que Encelado (313 millas o 504 kilómetros de diámetro) se encuentra justo por debajo del centro. Mimas (246 millas o 396 kilómetros de diámetro) se cuelga por debajo ya la izquierda de Encelado.

Three of Saturn's moons
Three of Saturn's moons -- Tethys, Enceladus and Mimas -- are captured in this group photo from NASA's Cassini spacecraft.

Tethys (660 miles or 1,062 kilometers across) appears above the rings, while Enceladus (313 miles or 504 kilometers across) sits just below center. Mimas (246 miles or 396 kilometers across) hangs below and to the left of Enceladus.

This view looks toward the sunlit side of the rings from about 0.4 degrees above the ring plane. The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Dec. 3, 2015.

The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 837,000 miles (1.35 million kilometers) from Enceladus, with an image scale of 5 miles (8 kilometers) per pixel. Tethys was approximately 1.2 million miles (1.9 million kilometers) away with an image scale of 7 miles (11 kilometers) per pixel.  Mimas was approximately 1.1 million miles (1.7 million kilometers) away with an image scale of 6 miles (10 kilometers) per pixel.

The Cassini mission is a cooperative project of NASA, ESA (the European Space Agency) and the Italian Space Agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington. The Cassini orbiter and its two onboard cameras were designed, developed and assembled at JPL. The imaging operations center is based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colorado.
