Today’s Astronomy Picture of the Day is gorgeous. This is a photo that belongs in a nice frame to hang on the wall in an elegant home. To anyone living on Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, the view of the rings around the giant planet is something never seen except edge-on. The shadows of the rings on the planet provide a clue as to their shape, but that’s all.
