Can you find the itsy-bitsy dot we call Earth?



NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has captured a “natural color portrait” of Saturn that is the first to show the planet and its moons and rings in the same shot with Earth, Venus and Mars, according to the space agency.

Where are we? 


Got a magnifying glass? Ah, that’s better:


In July, the cameras got a “panoramic mosaic of the Saturn system that allows scientists to see details in the rings and throughout the system as they are backlit by the sun,” NASA says.

The imaging team on Terra Firma’s point of light used 141 wide-angle shots to make the panorama. 

The picture of tiny Earth is a reminder of Carl Sagan‘s “pale blue dot.”
