Join us today, July 19, while we “photobomb” Saturn! The Earth portrait takes place between 2:27 and 2:42 pm PT. Information for other time zones is at: http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/news/waveatsaturn/timezones/
Wave at Saturn today when the Cassini spacecraft takes a picture of the full globe of Saturn with Earth peeking through the rings:
And, yes, we calculated time for photons to come to earth and back, etc.
In addition a Ustream event will originate from the JPL mall between 2 to 2:30 pm PT. Guests will be Scott Edgington, Deputy Project Scientist; Joe Burns, Imaging Team Scientist (Skyping in from Cornell); and Jane Jones, Cassini Outreach Team Member. Ustream info is at: ustream
There will also be a photo from ComicCon, and some image contributions from amateurs around the world, and a phone interview with Stuart Atkinson, hosting a Wave at Saturn event in Cumbria, England.
