Saturn from Above

High Above Saturn: This portrait, looking down on Saturn and its rings, was created from images obtained by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft on Oct. 10, 2013. It is a view we can never see from Earth. The picture was made by amateur image processor and Cassini fan Gordan Ugarkovic. This image has not been geometrically corrected for shifts in the spacecraft perspective and still has some camera artifacts.The mosaic was created from 12 image footprints with red, blue and green filters from Cassini’s imaging science subsystem. Ugarkovic used full color sets for 11 of the footprints and red and blue images for one footprint.
