Found this rather amazing image today by NASA's CASSINI

One of Saturns Moons, Titan is cut in half by the rings of Saturn itself. Amazing!




There's nothing up the Cassini imaging team's sleeves in this image; it is real! Is the moon Titan being cut in half by Saturn's rings? What's happening here is that the middle part of the rings are made dark as Saturn casts its shadow across them.
Cassini was just in the right place at the right time, making it appear as though Titan is being sliced in half by the rings! The night side of the planet is to the left, out of the frame of the image. Illuminated Titan can be seen above, below and through gaps in the rings

Beautiful. Absolutely amazing. It's the simple things in life that make me smile, and feel great.
This would be one of those "simple things".

It might not be much - just a picture in fact - but it's one of those pictures that is worth the money that has been spent on it.

I for one appreciate this one. (Although I might be seen later on engaged in ripping NASA to shreds for "cover ups", "conspiracies", etc).

I agree, it's simple, yet beautiful. Would make a great wallpaper I think!!

Cool image, however, this phrase stuck out.

Does it mean there have been deceptive images previously?

Haha.

Of course there has. Its NASA after all.

Just maybe not from this team.

I never really noticed that one. Good spot!

Maybe it just means that the image is almost too perfect to be true. i mean the odds are pretty amazing at capturing this.
