Very Cool Picture Of Saturn

The picture of Saturn below was taken last week by the Cassini space probe, which has been orbiting the planet since 2004.

Cassini is the first artificial satellite to orbit Saturn, and its counterpart, Huygens, was the first spacecraft to land on a planetary body in the outer solar system when it landed on Titan, which is one of Saturn’s 62 moons, and the second largest moon in the solar system after Jupiter’s Ganymede. Titan was discovered by the Dutch astronomer Christiaan Huygens, and is larger than Mercury.
