Earth Photographed Nestled in Saturn's Rings

This is a dramatic picture of Saturn cklit by the Sun. It was photographed by the Cassini spacecraft and resulted in the discovery of two more dusty external rings which scatter blue sunlight. Do you see the tiny blue speck nestled in the rings on the left? That is Earth. If you can't see it, look around you to learn to appreciate and take care of our home planet even more.
