The Cassini-Huygens spacecraft is near Saturn and will take pictures of the ringed planet and Earth - a very tiny Earth - in the background between 5:27 and 5:42 p.m. EDT. NASA and others are raising awareness about the mission by getting people to look up and photobomb Saturn. The Cassini team is calling it “The Day the Earth Smiled.”
