Blaze of glory

Saturn’s rings cast a dramatic shadow in this picture combining six images from the Cassini spacecraft’s wide-angle camera. After 13 years of observing Saturn, Cassini will hurl itself into the planet’s atmosphere at speeds of more than 75,000 mph, and eventually melt and vaporize on Sept. 15.
