Saturn: Beyond The Moon

The occultation of Saturn by the Full Moon on the evening of 14th May 2014.
This image was taken a few minutes after Saturn reappeared.
Saturn looks tiny in comparison, due to perspective - but its diameter is actually 35 times bigger than the Moon's.
Stop Press: There was another occultation of Saturn a few weeks after this. Image here.
