Basking in sunlight. The whole northern region of Saturn is bathed in sunlight in this view from late 2016 from our Cassini spacecraft. The hexagon-shaped jet-stream is fully illuminated here. In this image, the planet appears darker in regions where the cloud deck is lower, such the region interior to the hexagon. Mission experts on Saturn's atmosphere are taking advantage of the season and Cassini’s favorable viewing geometry to study this and other weather patterns as Saturn's northern…

An amazing gallery of earth images.  Looks like Christmas lights in the snow.  But they are also depressing.  Those lights also represent, loss of space for wildlife, diminished overall resources, rampant destruction of trees and waterways, overpopulation, loss of nighttime skies, depletion of ocean fishes, and runaway greenhouse effects.  Some say, we're going through another "mass extinction", which, if true, means that even man will be cut down to a few hundred, just like last time.

Pandora Up Close: This image from our Cassini spacecraft is one of the highest-resolution views ever taken of Saturn's moon Pandora. Pandora (52 miles, 84 kilometers) across orbits Saturn just outside the narrow F ring. The spacecraft captured the image during its closest-ever flyby of Pandora on Dec. 18, 2016, during the third of its grazing passes by the outer edges of Saturn's main rings. The image was taken in green light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera at a distance of…
