Swathes of iridescent blue, sandy-coloured plains and delicate strands of greyish white, create an ethereal and colourful view of our Solar System’s innermost planet. These contrasting colours have been chosen to emphasise the differences in the composition of the landscape across the planet. The darker regions…

Voyager 2 captured this image of Saturn on Aug. 11, 1981, from a range of 9.1 million miles away. Seen above the planet are the moons Dione (right) and Enceladus. This false-color print shows a green spot at the south edge of a yellow band; in true color, the spot would appear brown and the band white.
