Caption: Earth and Moon from Saturn, animated Cassini image. Earth is the bright dot, with the smaller and fainter Moon to its left. As the view pulls back, some of Saturn's rings of Saturn come into view. Above Earth is the A ring, and the F ring is below. Earth is some 1.4 billion kilometres beyond Saturn here. This image was obtained on 12th 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, when it will crash into the planet.
