The first true-color images of Saturn taken during Cassini’s close encounter are coming in — and they’re beautiful!

Astronomy Magazine - Mon, 05/15/2017 - 04:00
We’ve already been treated to spectacular black and white closeup images of Saturn, beamed home to Earth by the Cassini spacecraft after it dove between the planet and its rings. Now, we’re getting to see what things look like in true color. Among the first of these images is the one above, processed by Sophia Nasr, an astro-particle physicist working on dark matter. She will begin her PhD studies in physics at UC Irvine in September 2017. (For her full bio, see the end of this post
