Want to see some of the best art in the Universe? Look no further than Cassini, which orbited Saturn from 2004 to 2017.
The above image is a real colour photo made with red, green, and blue filters and taken from 1.4 million kilometers away.
You can see Saturn's bizarre hexagonal-shaped storm at the north pole, along with the planet's brilliantly sharp ring shadow.
This is another red-green-blue natural colour composite: Saturn's ring system, side on, with moons Mimas, Janus and Tethys.
This gives a scale for just how sharp those rings are; despite stretching 270,000 kilometres out, they average just 10 metres thick.
There's a lot more of Saturn to see in the video below, so enjoy the show of Cassini 🪐
