This is Saturn’s new portrait. The Hubble Space Telescope captured the view on June 20, when Saturn was about 845 million miles from Earth and tilted towards us. Even the more faint inner rings are visible here. The planet’s vivid amber color is due to a smog-like haze occurring during its summer where solar ultraviolet radiation creates reactions in the atmosphere. Just like Earth, Saturn goes through seasons but they last longer like in “Game of Thrones.” Saturn’s seasons can last more than seven years.
