Earth as seen from Saturn

It looks like a photoshopped [Adobe, wanna sue someone?? ] artistic impression. But no!! In fact, the image is a composite (layered image) made from 165 images taken by the wide-angle camera on the Cassini spacecraft over nearly three hours on September 15, 2006.The color in the image was created by digitally compositing ultraviolet, infrared, and clear-filter images and then adjusting the final image to resemble natural color.
