I’ve looked at a lot of space photography in my time, and personally I think the Cassini-Huygens project has turned out the most amazing shots ever.  Even more amazing than the Hubble.

I’ve been watching quite a few rss feeds for the occasional great shot, but I found The Source,  the Cassini Imaging Central Laboroatory for OPerations, or CICLOPS.  The really good stuff is found on their images page.

Today’s new image is the one I show there at the top.  It’s called Worlds In Orbit, and shows three moons, the rings on edge, and on the surface of Saturn the shadows of the rings.  Amazing.
