This is really amazing from a scale perspective; at 240K miles, the infamous image of the Earth from the Moon showed how one could cover up the Earth with their thumb. Cassini is at the same distance to Saturn, yet I could barely cover up Saturn with my upper torso ;). The size of Saturn is mind blowing. Great stuff guys.
