Friday night lights

Via Phil Plait at Bad Astronomy comes an utterly awesome picture of Saturn as aggragated from 165 iimages from the Cassini probe. The sun is behind Saturn and the rings are backlit. Wow!

This one is also fantastic but go see the large format images. Stunning.

We are lucky to see something like this in our lifetime. Thank you for passing it along.
