NASA's Cassini spacecraft has delivered a glorious view of Saturn, taken while the spacecraft was in Saturn's shadow.

UNEDITED actual photograph of Saturn. Taken by Cassini Orbiter.
The robotic Cassini spacecraft now orbiting Saturn recently drifted in the giant planet's shadow for about 12 hours and looked back toward the eclipsed Sun. Saturn's rings light up so much that new rings were discovered: Saturn's E ring, the ring created by the newly discovered ice-fountains of the moon Enceladus, and the outermost ring visible above. Far in the distance, visible on the image left just above the bright main rings, is the almost ignorable pale blue dot of Earth.
