This image, taken during Cassini‘s orbital insertion at Saturn, shows, from left to right, the outer part of the C ring and inner part of the B ring.
A visit from Saturn… This will never never ever happen! In the video you can see what Earth’s sky would look like, if Saturn went off its orbit, to the inner solar system.
