Saturn Au Natural

In this age of punching everything we see up with this or that enhancement or multi-spectral photos that really, when you come to think about it, don't have a whole lot to do with the original, it's nice to see something that is truly stunning in its' natural state.

Take for instance this photo taken by the Cassini spacecraft in July, showing Saturn as a glowing beauty. This composite photo released yesterday shows what Saturn looks like in its natural state, without any enhancements or coloration.

I have looked through my own scope and seen something very much like what is shown here. It truly is every bit as amazing as this photo shows. Not everything needs a fist full of filters and
false colors.
