High Above Saturn – Der Saturn von oben fotografiert


Gordan Ugarkovic hat ein paar aktuelle Saturn-Fotos der Cassini-Huygens-Mission zu einer grandiosen Draufsicht zusammengefügt. Das Foto gibt’s in diversen Auflösungen bei der NASA.

This portrait looking down on Saturn and its rings was created from images obtained by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft on Oct. 10, 2013. It was made by amateur image processor and Cassini fan Gordan Ugarkovic. This image has not been geometrically corrected for shifts in the spacecraft perspective and still has some camera artifacts.The mosaic was created from 12 image footprints with red, blue and green filters from Cassini’s imaging science subsystem. Ugarkovic used full color sets for 11 of the footprints and red and blue images for one footprint … For more information about the Cassini-Huygens mission visit http://www.nasa.gov/cassini and http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov.
