Earth Photo from Saturn Last Week is Released

Saturn's Rings and Earth

Last week, July 19, at 3:27 p.m. MDT, you could’ve been in this photo of Earth from Saturn. Yes, that’s Earth below the rings, to the right. That little dot there….yeah, that’s it.

This is the first release of the series of photos taken during a 15-minute period that day by the Cassini spacecraft of Earth as Saturn blocked the bright sun in a convenient eclipse.

A more highly processed photo is on its way in the next weeks. At the same time, a spacecraft orbiting Mercury took a photo of Earth from the opposite side. Both photos showed the Earth and Moon. And, again, those photos will be processed.

What about the people who waved?
