    The NASA JPL Cassini site says this is color enhanced…. But even the boring one is amazing.

    Thank you so much for this fantastic picture. I couldn’t sleep so I was prowling around scienceblogs knowing I’d find something interesting. And here it is.

    And thanks, Dave, for the link to the NASA source site. Lots of goodies there.

    And according to the JPL site, that little dot above the left edge of the main rings is… the planet Earth.
