Blue-colored planet that rains glass uncovered by NASA's Hubble space telescope

Earth is often referred to as the "blue planet," or "pale blue dot," due of course to the abundance of liquid water on its surface (about 70 percent is covered by water). But now astronomers have found another blue planet, and on this world, instead of water, it likely rains glass — and sideways at …

APOD: Saturn, Titan, Rings, and Haze (2013 Jul 29) Image Credit: Cassini Imaging Team, SSI, JPL, ESA, NASA http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130729.html Explanation: This is not a solar eclipse. Pictured above is a busy vista of moons and rings taken at Saturn. The large circular object in the center of the image is Titan, the largest moon of Saturn and one of the most intriguing objects in the entire Solar System. The dark spot in the center is the main solid part of the moon. The bright surrounding ring is atmospheric haze above Titan, gas that is scattering sunlight to a camera operating onboard the robotic Cassini spacecraft. Cutting horizontally across the image are the rings of Saturn, seen nearly edge on. At the lower right of Titan is Enceladus, a small moon of Saturn. Since the image was taken pointing nearly at the Sun, the surfaces of Titan and Enceladus appear in silhouette, and the rings of Saturn appear similar to a photographic negative. Now if you look really really closely at Enceladus, you can see a hint of icy jets shooting out toward the bottom of the image. It is these jets that inspired future proposals to land on Enceladus, burrow into the ice, and search for signs of extraterrestrial life. http://www.ciclops.org/view/2055 http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA08235 http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/photos/imagedetails/?imageID=2222 Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130729 #APOD
