Caption: Earth from Saturn, Cassini image. Earth is the point of light at centre, with the Moon to its left. Some of the rings of Saturn are visible above and below Earth. At top is the A ring, with the Keeler and Encke gaps visible, and the F ring at bottom. The distance to Earth is 1.4 billion kilometres. Saturn is a large gas giant planet, with a ring system that consists of thousands of chunks of rock and ice. This image was obtained on 12 April 2017 by Cassini's Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS). The Cassini spacecraft has been surveying the Saturnian system since 2004, with its mission scheduled to end in September 2017.
