The Cassini mission is currently executing a series of daring ring-grazing dives as the mission comes closer to the culmination of its epic 20-year-long journey in space.
The new image captures the unilluminated side of the rings from about seven degrees below the ring plane.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration or NASA tweeted:
The view was obtained at a distance of about one million kilometers from Saturn.
The finale orbits bring the spacecraft closer to Saturn than ever before, providing stunning, high-resolution images and new insights into the planet's interior structure and the origins of the rings, NASA said.
During its final plunge into Saturn, Cassini will send data about the atmosphere's composition until its signal is lost.
