Cassini Probe Photo's From NASA

image This is Saturn backlit by the sun, it was taken by the Cassini Probe for NASA.

At this distance, NASA dares not point the probes sensitive cameras at the Earth because from almost a billion miles away, Terra and sun are too close together and the sun's harsh light could destroy Cassini's camera. However, in this instance (below) when the sun was eclipsed by Saturn, NASA jumped on the opportunity to deliver this breathtaking shot
