These stunning photos of Saturn were taken by NASA’s Cassini orbiter in My 2007 but have just been released. They were featured in all their colourful glory on the National Geographic blog this week: ‘By assigning different visible colors to the otherwise invisible wavelengths, we see auroras in bright green, sunlight reflected off Saturn’s rings and high-altitude haze in shades of blue’.
