This image from Voyager 2 combines images taken in ultraviolet, violet, and green filters to bring out features in Saturn’s atmosphere. Changes in the atmosphere from Voyager pass a year earlier suggested seasonal variations taking place on the planet.
NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute ~ NASA released this rare view of Saturn taken from the Cassini spacecraft. the image was taken while Cassini was in the planet's shadow, so Saturn and its rings were backlit by the sun.
With giant Saturn hanging in the blackness and sheltering Cassini from the sun's blinding glare, the spacecraft viewed the rings as never before, revealing previously unknown faint rings and even glimpsing its home world.
Saturn has changed colors and scientists are trying to figure out why
Backlit Saturn - Seen from the Cassini SpacecraftThe Cassini spacecraft was sent by NASA and ESA to study Saturn and its moons. Two of Saturn’s moons, Enceladus and Tethys, appear in the bottom right of this image.
Saturn and Titan in true color: Titan hovers near Saturn's rings in this true color view of the two worlds. This composite is comprised of images taken by the Cassini Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS) from a distance of kilometers.
Saturn eclipsing the sun, with the Earth visible in the upper left section of Saturn's rings. In NASA's robotic Cassini spacecraft drifted in Saturn's shadow for about 12 hours and Cassini saw a view unlike any other. The rings light up so much tha
