In Saturn's Shadow

Check out this stunning photo of Saturn taken by the Cassini spacecraft as it loitered in Saturn's shadow.   This photo is truly unique because not only does it show Saturn in a stunning back lit but also it's inner rings, seven of it's moons and home planet Earth as well as Mars and Venus!  The extreme wide angle shot is a mosaic of 323 shots covering a distance of  almost 405,000 miles!
