Thankfully what this image does is convey that what you're looking at isn't just some piece of CGI'd artwork drawn up for people to set as phone wallpaper.

This is a real picture, taken above an orbiting world that's within our own solar system, which when you think about it is actually pretty incredible.

Cassini has been a pretty amazing source of imagery over the years, passing by each of Saturn's moons as it captures both the gas giant, its rings and even the Earth looking back.
