This amazing picture was taken by the Cassini probe, as it looked back on the eclipsing Sun. If you look carefully, you can see Earth just above the bright rings.

This picture was taken during Saturn’s ‘night time’, when the planet is partly lit by light reflected from its own majestic ring system.
