The Awe of Space

Biomes posted a link to Saturn pics, when Saturn had its Equinox last summer.  These pictures are amazing, even if you're not a space person.  But... am I reading them correctly?  That the rings are hundreds of km's across?  Someone needs to confirm that for me, cause that's crazy.  That means Saturn is HUGE if the rings alone are that wide.  And if it's that big, why the heck can't we see Saturn from earth?  And who knew it had so many moons.

Just amazing.
