The Sword of Herschel
by Kim Poor
In this unusual view of the rings of Saturn, Kim gives one of his most accurate planetary portraits. Mimas is the first major moon of Saturn. Voyager maps of the moon show a huge crater named Herschel at 2 deg. S and 90 deg. West--exactly the position to get this view. Future explorers will see this magnificent angle of the majestic rings. Saturn will always be in this position from this spot, only changing in phase, as Mimas is locked in position in its rotation.
