NASA Image

Here is a picture of Saturn (again).

Sorry, I know that you may not care for pictures of Saturn, but I am always amazed at these images that they are taking. This one was taken by the Cassini-Huygens mission, which I believe is now simply called the Cassini Mission, because the Cassini probe is all that is left. The Huygens probe actually landed on the surface of Titan, one of Saturn's moons. (Which blows my mind.) I actually posted a picture that was taken from the surface of Titan around the time that it landed.

This image is called Crescent Rhea Occults Crescent Saturn, in case you were wondering...

I have added the Image of the Day Gallery to my Google Reader, and I would like to recommend it.
