Saturn, with wide bright rings, and a lot of details on the body of the planet.
View larger. | The Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Camera 3 observed Saturn on June 20, 2019. That was shortly before Earth flew between Saturn and the sun on July 9, and thus Saturn was generally at its closest to Earth for this year, at nearly a billion miles (1.36 billion km) away.
