Saturn in Ultraviolet Light

For a much larger and more stunning display, click here (I highly recommend it). I originally discovered this image by accident on Wikimedia.org, which is apparently a great resource for all sorts of photos – it’s amazing where a minor typo will take you!

This gorgeous image – which is the first planet that I’ve ever seen in UV – was taken by the Hubble Telescope, which has it’s own very own NASA-sponsored website. It’s a pretty great site, and it includes an amazing gallery of photos that are available for download as wallpaper.

Take the time to explore it and marvel at the wonders of space – and our amazing ability to get a glimpse of it like never before.
