This view of Saturn looks toward the planet's night side, lit by sunlight reflected from the rings. A mosaic of some of the very last images captured by Cassini’s cameras, it shows the location where the spacecraft would enter the planet's atmosphere hours later. The oval marks the entry site. While this area was on the night side of the planet at the time, it would rotate into daylight by the time Cassini made its final dive into Saturn's upper atmosphere, ending its remarkable 13-year exploration of Saturn.

In its final hours, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft returned these last looks at Saturn, its rings and moons, as it prepared to end its nearly 20-year voyage in space. This video includes the final image Cassini took, which shows the cloud tops where it would later plunge into the atmosphere.

''You have liquid water, you have energy and you have organic material, so if there's anywhere in the solar system other than earth, where some kind of life could exist, it could be Enceladus'' ---- nice thumbs_up
