The striking image has been garnering much praise and attention for its unique perspective. Shot from above Saturn's north pole, the image allows us to see the planet hovering in the midst of - and separate from - its rings. This view is impossible to see from Earth. The image also gives startling clarity to Saturn's rings, as well as to the bands circling the planet of the planet's atmosphere.
