Saturn from the Earth-orbiting Hubble Space Telescope. Both Cassini and the Earth-orbiting Hubble Space Telescope snapped spectacular pictures of the planet and its magnificent rings. For the first time, astronomers can compare views of equal-sharpness of Saturn from two very different perspectives. This view from Hubble is so sharp that many individual Saturnian ringlets can be seen.
