Arizona Science Center staff and guests today took part in the Photobomb of NASA spacecraft Cassini.

Today, Cassini took the third image ever of Earth from the outer solar system since the Space Age began. Although Cassini is nearly 900 million miles away and Earth will appear as only a small blue speck in the images taken, rest assured the images will be magnificent and will expose patterns in Saturn’s rings that were backlit by the sun during the 15-minute window today.

NASA said that the photos will be released next week as early as Monday, so keep your eye out for the little blue spot, Earth, and celebrate that you took part in the first ever interplanetary photobomb!
