Welcome to Solar System Watch!

First post...welcome! This blog is devoted to the latest astronomy news, with a special emphasis on planetary science, which is also my field of study. And if you are wondering who is doing the blogging here, please have a look at my profile.

The blog's title graphic is extracted from this image of Saturn that was acquired by the Cassini spacecraft on May 4, 2005. Here we are looking obliquely onto the dark side of the ring plane. Saturn was in winter when this image was acquired, so the Sun is south of the rings, which also cast shadows onto Saturn's northern hemisphere.
