A Beauty Contest from Far, Far Away

Watching Saturn from a land-based telescope has mesmerized me for quite a time now. However, with the Cassini probe now in its fourth year of orbiting Saturn, I’ve had opportunity to wonder more of Saturn’s beauty (added to it are the more than thirty moons or satellites orbiting the great planet). I just submitted my vote for the most beautiful picture of Saturn courtesy of the Cassini Imaging Central Laboratory for Operations (CICLOPS) in the “Cassini Favorite Image Contest for 2007.”

These are my favorites:

“The Face of Beauty”


A Pearl at Dusk
