Cassini’s 10th Anniversary

shadow-saturn

Cassini has been orbiting Saturn for ten years. In that time, it has taken some truly phenomenal photographs. I’ve already posted about a couple of them (In the shadow of Saturn & Saturn from above), as well as a montage of eight years of images by Cassini.

Over at Slate (Bad Astronomy), Phil Plait takes a look at 10 beautiful photographs taken by Cassini of Saturn over its ten year period of operation. What is impressive about them is that every image is just so stunning. Not only Saturn, but its moons as well. I still reckon the image above is my favourite of the lot, but you should definitely check them all out.

It really is an amazing achievement. Onwards!
