I have been sent a number of 8.5"x11" lithographs of this amazing composite panorama of Saturn & its rings, so I thought it might be time to do another random mailing to DW & LJ friends who would like one. The image is so titled because you can see the Earth peeping out next to the narrow, solitary G ring on the left side. It's a stunning construction, as described on the back:
"The panoramic view was created by combining 165 images taken by the Cassini wide-angle camera over nearly three hours on September 15, 2006...Ultraviolet, infrared and clear-filter images were digitally composited, then adjusted to resemble natural colour."
To (potentially) receive a copy, just answer this poll.
Which of these is your favourite thing about Saturn?
Saturn & Jupiter protect the solar system by flinging trespassers out of it. It's like border patrol, except unequivocally good.
Its mysterious rotation period, which has yet to be pinpointed.
Its potentially habitable moons. I'm moving to Titan ASAP.
The beautiful rings.
It's a GIANT BALL OF SPINNING GAS OMG
Will you cherish this image with the reverence it deserves?
