Courtesy NASA/JPLIn this 2006 image of Saturn as captured by Cassini, Earth can be seen as the small, blue dot on the left just above the main, bright rings. This is only the second-ever photo of Earth taken from deep within our solar system, at 926 million miles away. On Friday at 3:30 p.m., Cassini will take the third such photo, and NASA is asking all Earthlings to face east and wave high to our ringed neighbor.
