    This image was taken in 2007 by Cassini during a flyby of Saturn’s largest moon Titan when the probe was 1.23million kilometres away.

    It was captured using a navigation technique called a “pi transfer”, which uses the gravity of the moon to alter the spacecraft’s orbit so it can gain a different perspective of Saturn.

    The image is one of a number recently released.
