Recent Image from Cassini – and a couple oldies

A great natural color image of Saturn from Cassini this month – while they are still about 16 million miles apart.

I also stumbled across a couple of great older pictures of Saturn. First, a 1997 image from Hubble showing auroral clouds at Saturn’s poles – trippy business; and, a real classic – a color-corrected image taken by Voyager 1 in 1980 at a distance of 27 million miles. Wow.
