Possible variations in chemical composition from one part of Saturn's ring system to another are visible in this NASA Voyager 2 picture, as subtle colour variations can be recorded with special computer-processing techniques.
This highly enhanced colour view was assembled from clear, orange and ultraviolet images taken 17 August 1981 from a distance of 8.9 million kilometres.
