Saturn from Cassini, 2016-10-28

Taken on October 28, 2016, it was one of Cassini’s last looks at Saturn and its main rings from a distance (approximately 870,000 miles / 1.4 million kilometers). The planet’s northern hemisphere is seen here at top. This view looks toward the sunlit side of the rings from about 25 degrees above the ringplane. Images taken with the wide angle camera using red, green and blue spectral filters were combined to create this color view. Image source: NASA
