Cassini at Saturn Captures Earth and Moon by Lunar and Planetary Institute on Flickr.Via Flickr:
In this rare image taken on July 19, 2013, the wide-angle camera on NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has captured Saturn’s rings and our planet Earth and its moon in the same frame.
Earth, which is 898 million miles (1.44 billion kilometers) away in this image, appears as a blue dot at center right; the moon can be seen as a fainter protrusion off to its right side. An arrow indicates their location in the annotated version. The other bright dots nearby are stars. As seen at the bottom right side of the image, Earth is the blue point of light on the left; the Moon is fainter, white, and on the right. Both are seen here through the faint, diffuse E ring of Saturn.
