Are You in Cassini's Photo of Earth?

Are You in Cassini's Photo of Earth?

Did you look up and smile at Saturn last week while NASA’s Cassini spacecraft was doing its photo shoot?

Today NASA released the images from Cassini.  In one, Earth is seen as a tiny dot under Saturn’s beautiful rings.  They added an arrow to point it out.

In another, Cassini captured the Earth and our Moon.

JPL has published more images of Earth from Cassini, and another set from a different NASA spacecraft, MESSENGER, that is orbiting Mercury.

True, it’s only possible to see people in these images if you use your imagination, but then again, why not?
