Unexpected Wonders

The Cassini robot orbiting Saturn, drifting in the planet's shadow, looked back and photographed this awesome sight. Far in the distance to the left, just above the bright main rings you can see the "almost ignorable pale blue dot of Earth."

A spectacular photograph, people of SSI, JPL, ESA, and NASA, who get the credit for this one!
