Saturn: Halfway to southern winter

The shadows of Saturn’s rings edge ever farther southward as Saturn creeps towards southern winter (or northern summer). Saturn is now almost exactly halfway between its equinox (August 2009) and southern winter solstice (in May 2017). At equinox, the rings’ shadows appeared as a thin line at Saturn’s equator.
