Three of Saturn's moons appear as white dots, circling the giant ringed planet in stately procession. Take note of two straight lines across Saturn's rings. Those are shadows of two of the moons. The Hubble telescope took these pictures in 1995. They have been assembled as time-lapse movies to show the moons in motion, with swirling clouds in Saturn's atmosphere below them
