Pre-processed image of Saturn's north pole with rings to the side, taken from about 29,000 km:

This took about a day to get to Earth because it took several hours for Cassini to re-orient itself after using its main antenna as a shield while going through the ring plane.

As I am typing this at 2 pm PDT on May 2nd Cassini is making its second pass through the gap between Saturn and its rings.
Analysis of data from Cassini's first pass shows that the gap is relatively dust-free so JPL might reconsider the use of the antenna as a shield.

Well, that proves that Unicorns evolved into whales...

...which means Star Trek IV shares continuity with MLP.

It's amazing the carcass managed to make it to the bottom of the ocean floor and remained undisturbed for fossilization as I am surprised none of the aquatic dinosaurs scavenged it for a meal (or maybe they did since it was belly up, might find some teeth marks once they chisel down to the bones!).

The straight lines REALLY make me wonder. Meteors? airplanes? aliens?

The straight lines REALLY make me wonder. Meteors? airplanes? aliens?

Considering that this is a mixture of timelapsed photography: almost definitely airplanes.

A meteor might have streaked across a single frame and would not have formed a trail through several of them.

Of course:
