A Beautiful Photo Of Saturn And Titan

Updated March 30, 2019
This beautiful photograph of Saturn, its rings and the moon Titan was taken in 2012 by NASA's Cassini spacecraft.
The spacecraft Cassini's journey to Saturn took 7 years, and it orbited the planet for 13 years before it crashed into its atmosphere.[1] During its journey, Cassini took many awesome photographs, including this of Saturn, the planet's rings and the moon Titan. The photo was taken at a distance of 778,000 km (483,000 mi)[2] - about twice the distance between the Earth and the Moon.
