Fifteen years ago, in college astronomy, I saw Saturn through a giant telescope. It looked like this: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2016/01/04/12/2FC7F6CF00000578-3383727-The_picture_of_Saturn_taken_by_the_15_year_old_schoolboy_clearly-m-18_1451908993404.jpg
This teensy little yellow circle the size of a pencil eraser, with a little ring around it. And it was powerful for me actually. So powerful that, 10 years later, I included the experience in my debut novel.
So, just imagine the thrill I get from the Cassini images. Check out this NYT article: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/09/14/science/cassini-saturn-images.html
Stunning. Absolutely incredible.
Farewell, Cassini! Thank you!!!!
