Spectacular Saturn

Every planet in our solar system has its unique traits, but no planet looks as stunning as Saturn, with its prominent rings that imbue the planet with that classic sci-fi/space-age countenance. The photo above, taken by the Cassini spacecraft from an unusual angle, gives the planet the look of an old-fashioned black and white photo of a Hollywood movie star - the angles, shadows, and lighting make for a very artistic image.
