Image of the Day: Looking down on Saturn

The images of Saturn that we've been getting back from the Cassini spacecraft are unreal. As in, they look fake. But they're not, of course. A Croatian dude named Gordan Ugarkovic took 36 separate images of Saturn that Cassini took while it was above the gas giant's north pole, and used them to create this absolutely spectacular mosaic. According to Slate, the shadow side of Saturn is being faintly illuminated by light reflecting from the rings themselves. Whoa.

Okay, someone sell me a ticket already, I'm ready to head out there.
