This animation is composed of sixteen wide-angle frames captured by Cassini on July 29, 2007. The images were taken through a filter in a methane “window,” so details in Saturn’s clouds and on Titan’s surface that are usually obscured by methane haze are visible. Each image has been colorized based upon other natural-color Cassini images.
Titan transits Saturn from left to right as much smaller, brighter Dione moves from right to left at the extreme right edge of this image. Saturn’s rings are seen edge-on so are almost invisible. The rings cast broad black shadows on Saturn’s northern hemisphere. The full-size version is best viewed as a Quicktime movie (264k)

"Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence of Britain’s sovereigns since 1837 and today is the administrative headquarters of the Monarch. It has 775 rooms. These include 19 State rooms, 52 Royal and guest bedrooms, 188 staff bedrooms, 92 offices and 78 bathrooms. In measurements, the building is 108 metres long across the front, 120 metres deep (including the central quadrangle) and 24 metres high.
The Palace is very much a working building and the centrepiece of Britain’s constitutional monarchy. It houses the offices of those who support the day-to-day activities and duties of The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh and their immediate family. The Palace is also the venue for great Royal ceremonies, State Visits and Investitures, all of which are organised by the Royal Household.” (♔)
