Farewell Cassini

Of all the spectacular images returned by Cassini, this one is my favorite.

This beautiful image of Saturn and its rings … is a composite (layered image) made from 165 images taken by the wide-angle camera on the Cassini spacecraft over nearly three hours on September 15, 2006.  The bottom image is a closeup view of the upper left quadrant of the rings, through which Earth is visible in the far, far distance.

they are regarded as dust on the scales;” – Isaiah 40:15 (NIV)
