Saturn’s Rings after Equinox – SETI Talk: Video

Larry Esposito gave a weekly colloquium talk at the SETI Institute in Mountain View, CA on March 14, 2012. Saturn’s Equinox 2009: Oblique lighting exposed vertical structure and embedded objects. The rings were the coldest ever. Dr. Esposito will show how images inspired new occultation and spectral analysis that show abundant structure in the perturbed regions. The rings are more variable and complex than we had expected prior to this seasonal viewing geometry.
