VIDEO OF THE DAY: Spending Some Quality Time With Saturn
May 28, 2012

The Cassini probe, a NASA satellite that was launched back in 1997, has been orbiting Saturn since 2004, beaming black and white still images back to Earth the whole time. Recently, some of Cassini's images helped scientists to discover "mountains" hiding in the seemingly smooth rings around the planet. Now, geology student Nahum Chasarra has combed through NASA's massive catalogue of those images, and stitched them together into this breathtaking video.

Set to the strains of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, the video includes many close-up shots of the planet's rings, as well as shots of other celestial bodies like moons and asteroids. Through sequencing, Chasarra has turned the stills into full-motion video. Check it out below:
