Hey, it’s a gorgeous shot of Saturn’s sixth largest moon! Wee!
Cassini has captured one of a few rogue portals into Diablo’s Lair, this one being on Saturn. Look at that shit! A blood-churning blood-filled hurricane of doom! Oh, don’t give me anything about spectral filters. Or extrapolations. That is how it truly looks. I can feel it.
Oh, Venus. The planet is playing coy in this picture, hiding from us. Though, it does have some help with the majesty of Saturn in this picture’s forefront.
Why does Saturn have hexagonal clouds? That’s a great, great question. Few minds have solved the riddle, and often those bodies have been found discarded in the dumpsters at the local Wendy’s Burger and Diarrhea emporium. Dare you attempt to solve the puzzle? Then dive further into this here article.
How is this for a storm. The wunder-object Cassini has picked up a thunder-and-lightning maelstrom on Saturn that is so goddamn enormous, it wraps around the entire planet. That is some straight not fucking around space right there.
Check out Saturn’s back-lit donkey! It is a wondrous image captured by the necro-astronomers, far beyond the pale of our Earth’s purview. I promise. I’m not making this up.
G’damn! Saturn is quite large. This gorgeous picture was snapped back in August by Cassini, and it captures the true hulking might of the planet named after a video game system. That’s where it came from, right? Shame it couldn’t have been named after a more wonderful gaming system, but hey. Who could have known?
Oh Dione, you’re still pretty to be dammit!
Our fat brains can’t really process things. Consider Saturn’s sheer enormity in comparison to us. Then try and comprehend how small in relation to the sun. Then appreciate how fucking small the Sun is in the grand scheme. Nosebleed incoming!
Cassini has been capable of capturing some pretty righteous space pictures as it goes about in the Saturn system. This little bit of lighting awesomeness is only the latest example. Where be the rings, you ask? Double doi! I respond. In the shadow.
