A tour of the Saturnian system that will leave you breathless

Assembled from more than 200,000 photographs captured by the Cassini Spacecraft between 2004 and 2012, this remarkable video serves up one of the most awe-inspiring views of Saturn and its moons we've seen in ages.

The piece, titled "Around Saturn," is the creation of Fabio di Donato. The Italian filmmaker scoured the vast repository of raw images housed at Planetary Data System in search of shots that could be strug together to convey the otherworldly beauty of cosmic bodies in motion. When enjoyed with a playful waltz, it's the perfect four-minute vacation from life here on Earth.


"Around Saturn" is best enjoyed in full screen, HD, with the volume cranked up. If you're into this sort of thing, I highly recommend checking out "Outer Space" by Hauge-based filmmaker Sander van den Berg. Similar concept, similar execution. Really fantastic stuff.
