Cassini portrait of the System

Cassini continues to dumbfound me. This amazing instrument has added richly to our knowledge of our system’s second largest planet and more interestingly its moons. Recently, its been taking a ton of great pictures. JPL released one today taken in July of this year that had my jaw on the floor. The picture above is a true color image—yep, that is in true color—of Saturn and seven of its moons, not to mention Mars, Venus and Earth as well. It is taken facing the sun while in Saturn’s shadow which gives it an almost illustrated feel. It’s an amazing achievement for an amazing science instrument. Click on the picture itself to get the full sized image.  (Photo courtesy JPL)
