Help Finding Saturn Picture


Recommended Posts

Is this it?


Acutally, no. It was a picture taken by a satellite orbitting the planet. Saturn was directly in front of the sun and in the upper left-hand corner of one of the rings was the planet earth. Does that ring a bell with anyone?

From APOD ... Pale Blue Orb - Earth from Saturn

What's that pale blue dot in this image taken from Saturn? Earth. The robotic Cassini spacecraft looked back toward its old home world earlier this month as it orbited Saturn. Using Saturn itself to block the bright Sun, Cassini imaged a faint dot on the right of the above photograph. Vast water oceans make Earth's reflection of sunlight somewhat blue. Earth is home to over six billion humans and over one octillion Prochlorococcus.

Chomerics will know, he is the spaceman.

Actually I didn't, and I am still perplexed by the image called Saturn on the Sun. . . I thought of Cassini, but I didn't know the picture existed. . .It is very cool indeed!!!!

As for the first pic. . .It came from us and Chandra, but I am assuming it was from a flare, as Chandra is in a high elliptical orbit (almost 1/3rd the way to the moon) and is nowhere near Saturn.
