In this new shot, Saturn's moon Tethys orbits in front of wide shadows cast by the planet's rings. This spring's Atkinson Lecture speaker, Carolyn Porco, will shed more new light.
Happy birthday, Willamette!
Today is Founders Day here at Willamette: a time to stop and remember just how much history this place has. A big part of this history, of course, is happening right now. Take a look at some of the inauguration festivities that are approaching and, by all means, join us in supporting President Thorsett as he gets ready.
On a related note, be sure to get your Atkinson Lecture tickets if you'd like to hear planetary scientist Carolyn Porco talk about the latest action out there in the solar system. Seen those spectacular new Cassini photos of Saturn lately? Porco's behind them.
