A solar eclipse from the point of view of Cassini reveals Saturn in a way never seen before. With the planet’s orb blocking out the sun, the rings emerge in spectacular detail. The image also reveals some faint, previously unknown rings. But the most beguiling aspect of this image is the pale blue dot, poised just inside the G ring. That speck of light, almost invisible in the distance, is Earth.
