Wave at Saturn Today
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft is near Saturn, and its cameras today will be taking photos of the ringed planet from just the right perspective that Earth will be in the background of the shot.
Between 5:27 pm (EDT) and 5:42 pm (EDT) – thats between 2:27 pm and 2:42 pm for those of us on the West Coast – on July 19, Earth will be a small dot near the rings of Saturn in the Cassini photographs.
So, if you ever wanted to be in a photo from Saturn, look up this afternoon and wave. Don’t forget to smile!
