Images | saturn-1

Description

This image was made out of the combination of 126 images taken by Cassini during a lapse of 6 hours on October 6, 2004. Cassini was approximately 6.3 million kilometers (3.9 million miles) from Saturn. The view of Cassini didn't change much during the lapse, so no image required re-projection or alteration. They were just put together to make this great and only image.
