Saturn's Equinox

Edited NASA PR image of Saturn at her equinox a few years ago. Note the very thin shadow of her rings on the surface of the clouds... (The only editing I did on this image was to run it through a tonal contrast filter to bring out the details of the clouds.) If Earth had rings, the shadow of the rings on Earth would be at their smallest today, given it's the fall equinox today.
