This gorgeous Saturn photo will run rings around your other Xmas gifts12/19/2012
If anyone ever complains to you that astronomy is boring, resist the urge to karate chop them in the throat. Instead, show them this stunning photo of the heavens to prove them wrong. It depicts Saturn, photographed by NASA's Cassini orbiter as it zipped through the ringed planet's shadow in October. "Of all the many glorious images we have received from Saturn, none are more strikingly unusual than those we have taken from Saturn's shadow," wrote Carolyn Porco, director of the Cassini Imaging Team. "This one is our special gift to you, the people of the world, in this holiday season that brings to a close the year 2012." [Source]
