I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Astronomy Tuesday



Saturn is just so photogenic.

This is an image from 2006, taken by Cassini. The rings are viewed from the side, so only the thin line of their edge is visible (with one of Saturn's many moons visible as a dot) but their shadows loom across most of the planet's northern hemisphere.
