One can see other points of light in the first pic but not so in the others
because of the close-up view.

Looking like UFOs to me.
Perhaps they encounter the same electrical universe forces as UFOs.
Perhaps there are more EU details that have been removed from the
NASA Releases.

ED: I am wondering where all the galaxy stars went.

Earth is very very bright compared with the much more distant stars - a longer exposure would have shown more stars, but would have made the Earth seem like a bright white flared spot.

The distant planets in hi-res pics, like this one, always look like digital art, not photos to me. Like the planet being solid black with a sliver of color on the outside edge. The rings look fake to me. The light on the bottom of the picture as if light is permeating from a horizon.

The distance shown between earth and moon from that distance is also a bit shocking, you'd think that from that distance, we'd appear a bit closer together.

Thank you for sharing.

Cassini images are 1024x1024, hardly high-res either.

That light is one of Saturn's outer rings. It's very faint and diffuse. en.wikipedia.org...

This NASA's image is stunning, of course. I love how they enhanced it to show the faint outer rings.

Here's my version of the image, stacked directly from raw images at saturn.jpl.nasa.gov...

Proceed to zoom out from the surface of the Earth, until the Earth is but a pixel on your screen.

Zoom even further out until the Sun is but a pixel on your screen and Earth no longer visible.

Zoom out until the Milky Way Galaxy is the size of a coin on your screen and the sun invisible as it blends into the billions of other suns the make up the body of the Milky Way.

Zoom even further out until you are looking at the neighborhood of Galaxies that make up a "Galaxy Cluster".

Zoom even further out until that Galaxy Cluster now joins into a larger structure of Galaxy Clusters called "Super Clusters".

Zoom even further out until the entire Universe looks like a never ending filament of Super Clusters of Galaxies that looks like a sponge or a giant cosmic web all bound together by Dark Matter.

At this point and at this scale, the Earth is smaller than a subatomic particle and theoretically doesn't even exist.

You, right now, have a greater understanding and appreciation of what the big picture really is, the nature of reality and your place in it than any other human being who has ever lived on the planet Earth.
Assimilate this realization into your everyday life and you will shine like the Sun.

NASA : " OOOH look everyone, there's the Earth, that distant dot, isn't it pretty?, that's our home that is. What? I'm sorry, what was your question about UFO's buzzing around the Planet we call home? I beg your pardon, what was that about editing photographs?, Oh you don't need to worry about them, look at this pretty blue dot we're showing you instead".

suspicious? Science does overwhelm some folks, no biggie. Go start your own thread. Include photos of all those aliens and UFOS...We have a forum just for that.
And please don't take a wiz on this nice one, that appreciates the abilities of humankind. Capiche?

Cool pics, but I think I now feel some planet envy developing.

Your sarcasm is misplaced, as the photos featured in this thread are a product of editing. Raw images are rarely presentable to the public (yet still available). NASA stack images to make colour composites, or assemble them into mosaics and panoramas. Either way, there is editing involved, such as adjusting saturation/brightness/contrast, aligning the images with each other, getting rid of digital noise and cosmic particle traces, and other techniques to make a nice-looking image presentable to the public.

But yeah, if science scares and overwhelms you, go back to prattling on about UFOs and aliens.

Earth on left, Moon on right



That's no moon!


Thank you. I'll be here all week...

Beautiful pictures.

It brings a question to my mind though...

If Saturn is so big compared to earth,
then why doesn't Saturn appear bigger in the nights sky?

The tiny blue dot is still visible as a planet really from the pic,
and small compared to the size of Saturn.

Atmospheric interference?
The pictures of the earth from saturn weren't taken using the human eye.

Isnt it strange how large the moon looks compared to the Earth? I suppose that that the moon is closer to Saturn in its cycle.

Clearly there is no life on that thing

To think that every living thing that ever lived (that we know about) came from that little dot..is a little absurd



Corrected

Because its very far, you can barely see its rings with telescope. And this picture doesn't show what you would see with your own eyes from Saturn. I bet its impossible to see Earth from Saturn.

I think Carl Sagan would have loved these images.

How small and insignificant we are, yet we carry on like we're gods.

Hmph.

Why is Saturn black might be a dumb ?

Give us some credit though, we've managed to not only pollute our planet and low earth orbit, but we're actively sending trash out beyond the solar system. That's pretty grand, something crafted by human hands and technology is out there, drifting, possibly forever.
