This is a RGB composite created from three images that Cassini captured of Saturn and its moon Dione a few days ago. Cassini was approximately 1,537,357 miles (955,269 kilometers) away from Saturn at the time the images were taken.

Here is a simulated view of Dione’s position in orbit on Sep. 16 at around 10:00 UTC.
