Der Gasriese Saturn
Stunning view of Saturn by Cassini-Huygens 1200 million kilometres from Earth and 15.7 million kilometres from Saturn.
In this narrow-angle camera image from 21 May 2004, the ringed planet displays subtle, multi-hued atmospheric bands, coloured by yet undetermined compounds. Mission scientists hope to determine the exact composition of this material.
