The robotic Cassini spacecraft now orbiting Saturn recently drifted in the giant planet's shadow for about 12 hours and looked back toward the eclipsed Sun. Saturn's rings light up so much that new rings were discovered: Saturn's E ring, the ring created by the newly discovered ice-fountains of the moon Enceladus, and the outermost ring visible above. Far in the distance, visible on the image left just above the bright main rings, is the almost ignorable pale blue dot of Earth.

In the Shadow of Saturn. January 2009 the Cassini spacecraft was orbiting Saturn and drifted in giant planet's shadow for about 12 hours. Far in the distance, at the left, just above the bright main rings, is the almost ignorable pale blue dot of Earth.

Endless: This all-sky view of the entire near-infrared sky reveals the distribution of galaxies beyond the Milky Way. The image is derived from the 2MASS Extended Source Catalog, which contains more than 1.5 million galaxies, and the Point Source Catalog, which holds nearly 500 million stars within the Milky Way. The galaxies are color coded for distances obtained by various surveys. The nearest sources are blue, moderately distant sources are green, and red represents the farthest so
