More images from Saturn Equinox.

There was a big release of new images today from JPL with the newest shots from the Cassini spacecraft at the Saturn Equinox. The rings are hidden from Earth since they are edge-on to us, and just look like a thin line, but Saturn is going behind the sun right now so we can't see it anyway. Cassini sent back more amazing images, and a video showing how the rings cool down with the lack of sunlight.
I think I have a new favorite Saturn image. Kind of a dark and spooky looking view of the planet from above, but really nice if you ask me!
