Title: Looking back on Saturn - Far Side

Source: Voyager 1

Information: This image was taken four days after Voyager 1's encounter with Saturn. This view, showing the planet in crecent, is unobtainable from the Earth. Note the lower limb of the planet, showing the transparency of its rings. Relative to the size of the planet, Saturn's Rings are as thin as tissue paper spread over a 100 meter field.
