Looking Ahead article for Rev 162. There are some goodies to look forward to this month!

Saturn aurora March 5-7...
Enceladus' leading hemisphere March 10...
Some nice Rhea imaging on March 10 including a crescent view and a search for ring particles...
Very nice looking Titan/rings/Janus/Enceladus mutual event on March 11...
Tethys/Dione mutual event on March 14.

I'll leave the Titan stuff to the Titan monitors on this forum!

Enceladus, rings and Titan:

Because we see these kinds of images here all the time we may sometimes get a little jaded. But really, just look at that picture....the contrasts...the composition...the stories behind those objects, what we now know....simply amazing.

I second that.
One sometimes takes all this for granted - the effort that went into acquiring this image, and bringing it to public availability ~48 hours after it was acquired, for us to enjoy.

Simply beautiful. (thanks for the processing Gordan)
