To celebrate Earth Day, we have for you a wonderful picture of the earth… as seen from Saturn. Two days ago, NASA released a beautiful photograph of the earth from between Saturn’s icy rings, captured by the Cassini spacecraft. Yes, that tiny luminous dot is all of us, as seen from a billion kilometers away. According to NASA, the part of Earth facing Cassini at the time was the southern Atlantic Ocean. The image was tweeted by NASA on April 20 and has already been retweeted over 8,000 times. Check it out below and see if you can spot the moon in it:
