NASA’s Cassini spacecraft captured this photo of Earth from Saturn at 1:41 a.m. EDT April 13 (0541 GMT, or 10:41 p.m. PDT on April 12) from 870 million miles (1.4 billion kilometers) away. The Cassini spacecraft spotted Earth as a bright speck between Saturn’s broad rings as the craft prepares for its final dive into the ringed planet’s atmosphere.
