Range : 1.2 million km. ( 740,000 miles ) P-23954C Voyager 2 obtained this color image of Saturn's F-ring and its small inner sheparding satellite (1990S27) against the full disk of the planet. TheA-ring and the Encke Gap appear in the lower left corner. This view shows that the shepard is more refective than Sturn's clouds, suggesting that it is an icy, bright surfaced object like the larger satellites and the ring particles themselves.
