Editor’s note: If you go to this link on Time magazine’s website you can vote for the #1 image among Time’s Top Ten Editor’s Choice Images for 2005. So far, this image of Saturn is in first place with 28% of the votes. Please visit – and vote early – and often! Update: a few hours after this note was posted the image jumped ahead by an additional 2 points. Now, 24 hours later it is up to 40%

Original image: “Speeding toward pale, icy Dione, Cassini’s view is enriched by the tranquil gold and blue hues of Saturn in the distance. The horizontal stripes near the bottom of the image are Saturn’s rings.”
