Now that has got to be the trippiest, most beautiful ball of gas to ever exist. Using filters for the infrared, red, and violet spectrums, this picture that reveals the real lord of the rings as a faded emerald gem was taken from just 500,000 miles away.

The Cassini spacecraft took this mosaic of the planet Saturn on October 17, 2012. The back lighting of the sun is responsible for green and black shades that give the planet its looming presence.

Also captured in the photo are two of Saturn’s moons: Enceladus and Tethys. They can both be found towards the left side of the planet, below the rings. Enceladus is closer to the rings and Tethys is below and to the left.
