Beautiful Saturn Film

Continuing with the cool astronomical images, a number of people have put together this amazing film, which is a composite of images taken from the Cassini spacecraft. Cassini has been in orbit around Saturn since July of 2004.

I just get excited when great science can be not only useful and informative, but also beautiful, artistic and inspiring. Great work.

  1. I can see the cassini division in Saturn's rings through my telescope, but am feeling a little less proud about my telescope views after viewing these magnificent pictures.
