If you follow me on Twitter you’d know that I’m totally smitten with the Cassini mission to Saturn, and the images this space probe is sending back. Like this:
Click on the image for a description of the shot, and a link to a larger version. What you’re seeing is the enigmatic moon Enceladus (with geysers shooting plumes of water into space) ‘beneath’ the rings of Saturn, which is seen in silhouette, taking up the right half of the image. Gorgeous.
By the way, if you want to skip the middle man (me), and get the eye candy straight from the source, make sure you follow Caroline Porco, leader of the Imaging Team for the Cassini-Huygens mission, on Twitter (@CarolynPorco).
