NASA's Cassini Spacecraft Captures Backlit View of Saturn

NASA's Cassini Spacecraft Captures Backlit View of Saturn | Epic pics | Scoop.it

NASA's Cassini spacecraft shared this stunning new image of Saturn. Cassini's cameras were turned toward Saturn and the sun so that the planet and rings are backlit. NASA explains in a release that "The sun is behind the planet, which is shielding the cameras from direct sunlight." Saturn's moons, Enceladus and Tethys, can be seen in the image as small dots on the left side of the image, beneath Saturn's rings. You can see a larger version of the image here.
