This image looks like it can't possibly be real, but it is. Taken back in 2006 when the Cassini spacecraft was orbiting the sixth planet, this photo captures a nighttime view of Saturn as light sparkles off of its rings.

Quite possibly the most beautiful photo of Saturn ever taken

We are used to seeing images of Saturn's rings, but this one is more unusual because it is situated above the planet's North Pole. Saturn's rings are composed of dust and ice. The planet is the size of 763 Earths
