Earth From Saturn Picture By Nasa's Cassini Spacecraft Will Blow Your Mind

LOOK: Breathtaking Picture Of Earth From Saturn

NASA's Cassini spacecraft is 898 million miles away taking pictures of Earth - a feat so incredible it's difficult to get your head around.

A stunning image of Earth as a tiny blue dot framed by Saturn and its beautiful rings.

As if that isn't enough Nasa have also released this image of the Earth with the moon visible to the right hand side.

These pictures were taken over last weekend when everyone was invited to wave at the sky in the direction of Cassini.

If you want to see more of this then watch out for 'In Saturn's Rings', a motion picture created by stitching together over a million Cassini images.

This is only the third time the Earth has been photographed from space. In 1990 the Voyager 1 spacecraft took the famous "pale blue dot" photo from 3.7 billion miles away.

Then in 2006 Cassini took an incredible image showing a distant Earth set against Saturn's rings.
