This is the view of Saturn taken from 11,000,000 miles away by Voyager 1, in October 1980. It was the first high resolution image of the planet ever captured.
Saturn is the second largest planet, and is named for the Roman God, Saturn. It's ring system measures 170,000 miles across by about 1 mile thick. Pretty incredible, really.
I had a friend who worked at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) at the time, from where they managed the flight of Voyager 1. She gave us all actual framed pictures of this same shot for Christmas that year. I still have mine, although it is very faded.
