Saturn's Rings - NASA

The rings of Saturn courtesy the Cassini orbiter, a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency.

The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 1.4 million miles (2.3 million kilometers) from Saturn and at a Sun-Saturn-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 152 degrees. Image scale is 86 miles (138 kilometers) per pixel.

86 miles per pixel. Whoa.
