Magnificent photos from space probes

Smithsonian posted an absolutely breathtaking gallery of images taken by space probes over the last decade. From Smithsonian:
The Cassini spacecraft, which is now orbiting Saturn, looked back toward the eclipsed Sun and saw a view unlike any other. The rings of Saturn light up so much that new rings were discovered.
