This pseudo-colored image of the outer edge of Saturn's B-ring shows the ring structure broked up into numerous ringlets. The narrowest features are about 15 kilometers wide with the overall image about 6,000 kilometers wide. Variations in brightness are due to a combination of differences in ring particle number density and light scattering properties. The B-ring is the most opaque of Saturn's rings. The Cassini division is located at the upper left.
This picture was taken by Voyger 2 on August 25, 1981 from a distance of 743,000 kilometers.
