Die Astronomical Photo of the week

Earth from Saturn
Credit: Cassini Imaging Team, SSI, JPL, ESA, NASA
Explanation: What's that pale blue dot in this image taken from Saturn? Earth. The robotic Cassini spacecraft looked back toward its old home world earlier this month as it orbited Saturn. Using Saturn itself to block the bright Sun, Cassini imaged a faint dot on the right of the above photograph. That dot is expanded on the image inset, where a slight elongation in the direction of Earth's Moon is visible. Vast water oceans make Earth's reflection of sunlight somewhat blue.

TOM TOM TOM, we are supposed to be on a sabatical, which means no posting. How are we going to hunger out our audience if people keep posting willy nilly. You can get away with this just this once, after which it's curtains.
