Saturn's shadow stretches across the rings, and barely visible near lower right just inside the F ring, is the small shepherd moon Prometheus (102 kilometres across).
The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft wide angle camera on 29 October 2004, at a distance of about 940 000 kilometres from Saturn. The image scale is 52 kilometres per pixel.
