Cassini spots a sweeping shadow…

I noticed the latest batch of raw images sent back by Cassini included half a dozen which showed the shadow of one of its moons moving across the rings… here’s what you get when you put them all together in a little animation… (you have to click on the image to see the shadow moving)
