    O.M.G.
    I have seen Saturn (several times) through one of those huge telescopes at an observatory and I was impressed and pleased that I could actually see its rings through a telescope.

    But this one ...........
    WOW.

    That is one awesome shot! The wife and I are avid amatuer astronomers and we have seen some spectacular sights with our 8" Meade, but never anything like that! Thanks for the post Pace.

    The Cassini mission has been one of America's most successful space missions, ever.

    Thanks for posting this beautiful photo.
