From our friends at Space.com, a spectacular image of Saturn.
Saturn gets a new look in this new image taken by the Cassini spacecraft studying the ringed planet.
The vivid orange and yellow hues of Saturn’s atmosphere, and the blue tinge of its rings at far right, highlight this composite of several images taken by Cassini’s wide-angle camera. To build this view, researchers used special camera filters that are sensitive only to certain types of infrared light.
Although NASA released this image today, Cassini’s camera actually recorded it on Dec. 13, 2006 from a distance of about 511,000 miles (822,000 kilometers) from Saturn.
I never get tired of the marvels of our solar system.
