Today’s Astronomy Picture of the Day, courtesy of our wonderful space agency, comes to us from the Cassini spacecraft orbiting Saturn, and it is another mind-bending perspective on our universe. Here is the APOD page with all the info…but the short story is that this is Saturn’s moon Titan, its thick atmo all aglow, the gas giant’s ring system and the small moon Enceladus. It would be quite a visual trip to be in orbit around Saturn.
