If you've ever wondered or felt the wonder of seeing Earth from another place, or if you haven't ever considered that but now realize that would be very cool, here's something that will really tickle your fancy. The Cassini spacecraft, launched years ago to take photos of the solar system, recently passed through the rings of Saturn...and as it did, it took some photos of us! Yes, through the rings, you can find Earth in the pics! And even a glimpse of the moon and Earth! It puts things in a whole new perspective when you see us the way we look from the cosmos' point of view!

So, check out this link, the story, and the pics of how we look, from Saturn's point of view!
