WOW!




Saturn and its rings glow in a back lit, enhanced-color image from the Cassini orbiter. The picture combines images that were acquired using infrared, red and violet filters on Oct. 17. Two of Saturn’s moons, Enceladus and Tethys, sparkle on the left side of the planet. (http://gencept.com/year-2012-in-space-30-outstanding-photographs)
