From the producer, Darlene Laski:

"I was so enthralled with the story of Cassini and Saturn, that I created a picture of them using Cassini's images.

I can't prove it, of course, but I think Saturn is going to miss all the attention she received from the Italian photographer. After all, 13 years of peeking into her rings; snapping pictures of her moons; what planet wouldn't?"

The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington, D.C. The Cassini orbiter and its two onboard cameras were designed, developed and assembled at JPL. The imaging operations center is based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colo.
