Saturn's rings : This view looks toward the sunlit side of the rings from about 19 degrees above the ringplane. The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on April 10, 2017. The view was obtained at a distance of approximately 680,000 miles (1.1 million kilometers) from Saturn and at a sun-Saturn-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 128 degrees. Image scale is 43 miles (69 kilometers) per pixel. (Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute)

How far is Neptune from Earth? The distance from one planet to another is constantly shifting because both bodies are moving through space. When Neptune and Earth line up on the same side of the sun, at their closest, they are only billion miles

If the icy surface of Pluto's giant moon Charon is cracked, analysis of the fractures could reveal if its interior was warm, perhaps warm enough to have maintained a subterranean ocean of liquid water, according to a new NASA-funded study.
In the Shadow of Saturn. January 2009 the Cassini spacecraft was orbiting Saturn and drifted in giant planet's shadow for about 12 hours. Far in the distance, at the left, just above the bright main rings, is the almost ignorable pale blue dot of Earth.
Cassini: OCT. 31, 2002: CAMERA TEST - Cassini did a camera test 20 months before reaching Saturn. The spacecraft was 177 million miles (285 million km) from Saturn, which is almost double the distance between the Sun and Earth. (Pictured) The first color composite of images taken by Cassini on its approach to the ringed planet.
Saturn’s rings – acquired by Cassini spacecraft on July 6, 2017 – from a distance of 47,000 miles (76,000 km). Image scale about 2 miles (3 km) per pixel. Phase angle, or sun-ring-spacecraft angle, is 90 degrees. Via NASA PhotoJournal.
