APOD: Saturn from Above (2013 Oct 21) Image Credit & License: NASA/JPL/SSI; Composition: Gordan Ugarkovic http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap131021.html Explanation: This image of Saturn could not have been taken from Earth. No Earth based picture could possibly view the night side of Saturn and the corresponding shadow cast across Saturn's rings. Since Earth is much closer to the Sun than Saturn, only the day side of the ringed planet is visible from the Earth. In fact, this image mosaic was taken earlier this month by the robotic Cassini spacecraft now orbiting Saturn. The beautiful rings of Saturn are seen in full expanse, while cloud details are visible including the polar hexagon surrounding the north pole, and an extended light-colored storm system. http://www.flickr.com/photos/ugordan Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=131021 #APOD
