It takes Saturn almost thirty years to orbit the Sun, with the opportunity to image both of its poles occurring only twice during that time.
Really Quite Amazing and Unique Images!
Saturn Rings are very Unusual!

If you're going to set the record for the world's most expensive speeding ticket, you may as well do it in style. That seems to be the reasoning behind a Swiss driver who was caught driving his Ferrari Testarossa in a small village at 100 km/h in January 2010. A court in the northeastern Swiss canton of St. Gallen requested the man dip into his over-$23 million fortune to the tune of $290,000. The fine beat a previous Swiss speeding ticket record of more than $100,000, issued to a Porsche driver in Zurich in 2008, after a string of previous traffic offences.
