that is unbelievable... looking forward to the newer pictures coming in the next few weeks.
my goodness, that can't be real!!
It is! It's a "true color" image. The only enhancement they did was to brighten the 3 moons for better visibility.
Wow thats pretty, too bad you can't just go up in space and see it with your own eyes
Well not for a few hundred years
That is breathtakingly beautiful.
now that is cool. it's amazing what pictures they take in space now.
why can't our planet have multiple moons or rings
What amazes me the most is the sheer scale of that planet. The shadow it is casting on its rings is enormous. Of course, the low temperatures are also going to be spectacularly low in that shadow.
I prefer it like this. You get more of an idea of the inclination of its (hers?) rotation axis.
That's just plain awesome......
It doesn't even look real
I want one of those! If they are selling pieces of land on the moon, can I have some of Saturn? Anybody wanna split it with me?
Well, since Saturn is a gas giant, there really isn't any real estate there, to speak of..... you'd be better off on Titan - get great views too
Imagine Saturn on the horizon.....
all these pics will make great desktop shots
Do you want to take Mr. Anderson's suggestion about Titan? Then if you decided on the Moon or Titan, I would split.
Just incredible. Terrific. Beautiful. Imagine what Galileo would say if he could see such a photo...
It looks like clay being spun on a potters wheel. Wow, I'd love an image HQ enough to go on my desktop!
yes... that's amazing...
i love images from our space telescopes (view some hubble galleries... it's amazing)
Actually, I get excellent quality astronomical pics from here:
Astronomical Picture Of the Day
Still not big enough to cover my 1280x854 widescreen 15 inch desktop I'm afraid.
Check around, many of the images (if you click on them) are huge, such as the "Columbia Station" image (1.4 MB +).
Here are a few other good Saturn pics:
"Lord of the Rings"
actually that shot is from the Cassini probe...and its getting closer to Saturn, so we'll be getting even better shots soon enough.
The same Saturn picture is in that link. (March 1st, 2004)
You'll probably find a number of cool images you've seen elsewhere, only the archive explains them and usually offers good sizes.
