Experience the Planets artist drawing of Saturn

Gorgeous, isn't it? Drawn by artist Gregory Siegburg, it's part of a new project called Experience the Planets, started by a talented group of artists who want to create and collect beautiful artwork of the planets so that people can get a view of them that -- so far -- are difficult to obtain or cannot be achieved with our probes.

The pictures they have there are incredible, and available for download as wallpaper, too. My only complaint is that they don't have enough! But they're looking for more artists, so if you have the talent, you might want to contact them. They're supported by the International Year of Astronomy, too! So this is the real thing.

Go there and check out their work. It's beautiful.
