News and Images from the Planets Meeting

10/16/2006 9:46 AM

Scientific American has a blog on the recent annual meeting of the Division for Planetary Sciences of the American Astronomical Society (Here is the Link). Some of the images are really amazing, like this one of Saturn below, a mosaic of Cassini images taken with the sun behind the planet. It almost looks fake;

Also this picture of the Mars Rover;

Here is one of the surface of Titan. The darker areas are thought to be Methane lakes;
