Photos of Home

Short post today.

The Cassini probe, which is currently loitering around Saturn, took a beautiful image of Saturn's rings. Even more amazing, if you look closely you will see an arrow pointing to a small blue dot located beneath the rings.

That small speck is planet Earth. This marks only the third time that our home has been photographed from the outer solar system.

If you want a full resolution image you can find it here.
